    Turkish PM Erdogan Instructing Son to Hide Huge Sums of Corruption Money

     
    Turkey is shaking with the leaked alleged voice recording of PM Tayyip Erdoğan and his son.

    In the new voice recording, Erdoğan and his son Bilal allegedly discuss during five wiretapped phone conversations on plans how to hide huge sums of cash on the day when police raided a number of venues as part of a corruption investigation that has implicated sons of three Turkish ministers, businessmen and chief of the state bank. At the beginning of the phone conversation, the prime minister briefs his son Bilal about the raid and asks him to “zero” the amount (at least $1 billion cash) stashed at five houses. The authenticity of the recordings has not been verified.

    Hakan Fidan, undersecretary of the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) was immediately called in prime ministry. Prime ministry office was also published an immediate response, claiming the recording to be a “defile montage” and they will press charges.

    After an emergency meeting, Turkish main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has said the Turkish government has lost its legitimacy and called on Turkish Prime Minister to resign immediately after Erdoğan’s voice recording surfaced online.
