Arrested police officers taken to health check

ISTANBUL (CIHAN)- Police officers who were arrested in a pre-dawn operation were taken to the health-check on the 3rd day of their detention.

Police officers were taken to Haseki Training and Research Hospital for judicial control. Detained officers did not make any statement to the press members.

Following the controls in the hospital, detained policemen sent to the court as the four days temporary detention period ended. The interrogations of police officers are continuing in the courthouse.

Tuesday’s operation, which prosecutors say was launched in response to allegations of spying and illegal wiretapping, is widely believed to be an act of revenge by the government against a corruption probe that became public on Dec. 17 with the detention of dozens of people, including businessmen close to the government, senior bureaucrats and the sons of three then-ministers.
