Ankara:  Turkish Prosecutor Muammer Akkaş on Thursday claims that corruption scandal that rocked Turkey has been taken away from him.
“All my colleagues and the public should be aware that I, as public prosecutor, have been prevented from launching an investigation,” Akkaş said in a statement to the media.

The public prosecutor’s office in Istanbul ordered this week the arrest of 30 suspects, including top businessmen and people close to the government. Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan accused “foreign parties” of masterminding the corruption scandal to overthrow his government.
