Turkey today: Police starting al-Qaide operation replaced; Graft probe in Beyoğlu cannot proceed…

If the police does what the prosecutor orders, it is replaced. If not, they are ok. So an operation against corrupt officials in Beyoğlu, İstanbul cannot proceed because government does not allow. Because government believes all the corruption case is an attack to its sovereignty. Police chiefs do not want to be replaced. So they do not implement prosecutors’ orders. News in Turkish.
