A Turkish court on Tuesday appointed trustees to the management of the Bilim Sanat Vakfı (Science and Art Foundation), an organization affiliated with former Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoğlu, the Turkish media reported.

The foundation was established in 1986 by Davutoğlu along with a renown businessman Murat Ülker.

Davutoğlu, who served as prime minister between 2014 and 2016, resigned from the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in September 2019 and then launched a new political party in December 2019.

In December Turkey’s Higher Education Board (YÖK) decided to temporarily revoke the operating license of İstanbul Şehir University, another Davutoğlu-affiliated institution, and transfer its administration to Marmara University as a guarantor.
