Turkey launches investigation into U.S. prosecutors


Turkish authorities have opened an investigation into the U.S. prosecutors who brought charges against a Turkish gold trader facing trial in New York, state media said on Saturday, after Ankara said the case was based on fabricated documents, APA reports quoting Reuters.

 

The Istanbul prosecutor’s office is investigating former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara and acting U.S. Attorney John H. Kim, the state-run Anadolu news agency said, following allegations that their case was based on documents Turkey says were fabricated.

 

When asked for comment, Bharara referred Reuters to the Southern District of New York’s Attorney’s Office. James Margolin, a spokesman for the Attorney’s Office, declined to comment.
