ISTANBUL - A Turkish court has jailed the former head of the state media regulator and three others pending trial in an investigation into embezzlement at an Islamic charity, state-run Anatolian news agency said on Monday.

Police had detained Zahid Akman, former head of the RTUK state media regulator, and three senior executives of the Kanal 7 television channel on Wednesday.

The investigation is linked to a 2008 court case in Germany, in which three senior members of the charity, Deniz Feneri, were found guilty of embezzlement and sentenced to jail.

Turkey's ruling AK Party has denied any links to Deniz Feneri, based in Germany, but the case triggered accusations of government corruption.
