Big arrests happened on 17th december and this was recorded on the same date

Turkish police have arrested the sons of three cabinet ministers as part of an investigation into alleged bribery relating to public tenders.

The sons of the interior minister, the economy minister and the environment minister were detained, officials say.

Businessmen are among at least 20 people arrested in dawn raids in Istanbul and the capital, Ankara.

There is speculation the arrests could be linked to a dispute between the government and a leading Muslim cleric.

In a wide-ranging investigation, police raided the Ankara headquarters of one of Turkey's biggest banks, state-run lender Halkbank.

A senior official at the bank has reportedly been arrested.


Here is the tapped conversation

RTE: That may be
NE: OK. For the other part, because we started a business partnership with Mehmet Gur, we thought of giving it to him saying “keep it, as the projects come you can use from that. This way, we will be able to dissolve and move the rest to somewhere else.

Turkish PM's Office Denies Corruption Tapes

Wow! It's hard to get my head around those amounts, let alone imagine what the others and their sons are holding.
I can hardly wait for Act II.

A new record just surfaced linking Erdogan directly to Yasin al-Qadi (the al-Qaeda financier).

As the story goes Al-Qadi, Usame Kutub and a bodyguard suffer a car accident in Istanbul. Kutub calls Erdogan and asks for help, Erdogan sends ambulances and directs them to go to a "safe" hospital. Erdoğan later calls back and asks for developments.

Erdogan and Kutub had previously denied having any personal contact whatsoever.

Things are heating up. Turkish Prime Minister targeted in second audio tape. Erdogan claims the tapes are faked by his political opponents, and tests are being conducted to verify their authenticity. This is like a soap opera, isn't it? If they are fakes, that's some dirty trick opponents he has.

I wish I had the same problem the son was referring to when it comes to my money.. "were trying father but it takes up a lot of room." I wonder how many cubic feet 20 million dollars cash takes up comprised of 100 dollar bills.. So, is there a total on the amount these guys were holding? Just from the phone conversation im estimating 70/75 million with references to more but no figure assigned.. Where could you possibly house that amount of money? This is getting interesting..

In 100$ bills it would be 1.05369 cubic meters roughly.
This is interesting, i often wonder what kind of things
the NSA must have on record that half the honest people
in the US would have a heart attack over.

I can only imagine the insider information that is spread
freely amongst certain inner circles in both industry
and government.
