An investigation has been launched by the Justice Ministry against prosecutor Şalk who is carrying out the White Energy case...
The indictment also included an allegation of a 50 million dollar bribe by Ersümers Motherland Party (Anavatan) which is one of the three coalition partners. When a private conversation between Şalk and the Justice Minister was leaked to the press Şalk accused the minister and the leader of Motherland Party Mesut Yılmaz who disclosed this information to the press of being politically unethical.
This sparked off a furious response from Mesut Yılmaz who accused Şalk of being partial in the matter and said Şalk could not at this stage be expected to act in the name of justice. As a result of Motherland Partys formal complaint to the Justice Ministry, two inspectors were tasked with looking into Şalks position on the case. If, as a result of this pre-evaluation they find grounds for a further investigation, a formal investigation will be launched against prosecutor Talat Şalk.
