On December 17 (the day of the graft operation), Medet Nabi Yanik, best man of Prime Minister's son in law Berat Albayrak, carries part of the money which was transferred from Prime Minister's office by cars. His name had come into the picture during the money transfers for the buying process of Turkuvaz Media with the PM's order.
Medet Yanik carries the money that were being kept in Kisikli on December 17, with the order of Berat Albayrak. He carries a big bulk of money to Omer Faruk Kalyoncu, who is the new owner of Sabah Daily and ATV channel, on December 17. He also transfers another bulk to Calik Group the next day.
The money was carried by an armored van (in one transfer)
1st phone talk:
Yanik: Best man of PM's son in law, Berat Albayrak
Hakan Arslan: Assistant to Faruk Kalyoncu who “liquidified” a substantial amount of money in PM's house.
Yanik loads the money from PM's house in Kisikli and hands them over to Hakan Aslan, who runs errands for Faruk Kalyoncu, to be given to Faruk Kalyoncu.
The money is taken to the Kalyon Holding building in Beykoz-Kavacik from Kisikli.
This money transfer was mentioned in the phone tapping between PM and his son, Bilal Erdoğan as : “Berat has another idea. He says that let's give some of it to Faruk[Kalyoncu] for the other “business/thing” so he can process them like the previous ones. We can dissolve a big amount with this.” (17/12/2013, 11:52:15)

On December 18,25 million dollars of the money that could not be zeroed from the PM's house, is handed to Calik Holding.
Riza Ağın is an employee in Calik holding. He is being asked to make preparations to take the money early in the morning.
As far as it is understood from the recordings, a big amount of money was “dissolved” at Calik Holding the day before. But as the “dissolving” had not finished easily, it had to be completed the next day.
This money transfer was talked about on the phone between PM and his son as such:
“We did not zeroed it yet daddy. Let me explain.. We still have a 30 million euros that we could not yet dissolve. Berat thought of something.. There was an additional 25 million dollars that AhmetCalik should receive. They say let's give this [to him] there. When the money comes, we do [something], they say. And with the remaining money we can buy a flat from Sehrizar, he says.” (18.12.2013 09:28:48)
