How can a foriegn new organization gain access to a police report in Turkey, unless some political opponenets want to discredit the current government. I guess Erdogan was not joking, the leaks and police investigations are politically motivated.

I hope Erdogan puts all of his opponenets aside!

And besides, Turkey is a sovereign country. It can sell gold to whoever it wants. Period. Reuters makes it sounds like they were selling narcotics!!!

We have the Koch Brothers over here in the good old USA and their money doesn’t have to be given to politicians in “shoe boxes.” It is all legal thanks to the Supreme Court. Buying politicians and treating them like kings for special favors, lower tax rates etc. is all part of the U.S. political process, especially by the politically right who have their own “news channel” called Fox. The U.S. political system is so corrupt it makes me want to arm up and go into the National Forest and cut down a few trees to sell while I wave an american flag and have “fox news” declare me a hero.

Just another example of unscrupulous nature of the ruling mullah leadership. This is just part and parcelof the single-minded focus on funneling all resources towards its ruling elites and support for terror networks like Hezbollah, as well as pouring vast sums of money to prop up the Assad regime in Syria and continue a costly nuclear weapons development program. Cutting subsidies is just another indication of where Iran is putting its priorities and it’s not in their people who are subject to police arrests, imprisonment, beatings, torture and grisly public hangings.
