Turkish Police who investigated AlQaeda and IS arrested and taken to nearby hospital for ‘treatment’. (Bugun).
On Sunday a new wave of government-backed raids hit the police, this time in the eastern province of Van, detaining 19 officers on “illegal wiretapping and forgery,” allegations which critics have slammed as a pretext the government has used to muzzle the police force.
Six of the officers were released, while the remaining 19 were arrested by the court in the eastern Turkish province and taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment.
The former Van National Police Intelligence Chief and his team were among the 19 arrested by the Court of Criminal Peace, a judicial body which have been at the epicenter of government backed cases.
