ISTANBUL Jan 30 Turkey's Cukurova said on
Wednesday a British court had ruled in its favour in litigation
with Russia's Altimo over a disputed stake in Turkcell
, saying the ruling meant it should be given the
opportunity to repay a defaulted loan and recover its shares.
"In reaching its decision, the Privy Council confirmed that
Alfa (Altimo) had entered into the transaction with the aim of
obtaining control of Turkcell and had deliberately taken steps
to prevent Cukurova repaying the loan to try to ensure that its
goal was achieved," Cukurova said in a statement.
