Ülkü Adatepe is the adopted daughter of the founder of the Republic of Turkey, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Her sons sent notarized letters to the Republican People's party (CHP), and Turkey's largest bank, demanding that they deliver their grandfather's $1 million inheritance to them.
Adatepe died in a car accident last year, and her sons are preparing to file a lawsuit against the CHP and the bank if they refuse to pay the inheritance to them. Their letter claims that their mother's rights were violated and she never rightfully received her inheritance so they are just trying to collect the money that belongs to her.
