Turkish mafia boss Sedat Peker is leveling serious accusations against leading government lawmakers. He has published five videos on YouTube in which he claims that high-profile politicians from Turkey’s ruling AKP party are involved in serious crimes. The clips, which have gone viral and are making headlines, claim leading lawmakers were involved in malfeasance, murders, rapes, drug trafficking and other illicit practices. Peker alleges the Turkish government has spent the past years shielding him from persecution, even issuing police escorts to guarantee his safety. As the government has so far refused to investigate Peker’s claims, Turkish opposition lawmakers are demanding Soylu’s resignation. But without a full investigation into the accusations, nobody knows at this stage whether there is any truth to the allegations. To read the full story, check out the article on DW.
