Devlet Bahceli, chief of the M.H.P., one of many right-wing nationalist teams allied with Mr. Erdogan, denied any hyperlinks to the mafia in feedback on Tuesday.
Mr. Peker will not be the one one with allegations of dust towards the federal government. Mr. Erdogan’s political opponents, sensing his rising vulnerability, have sought to show allegations of corruption or abuse of energy at each flip.
However Mr. Peker, with as many as 4 million viewers tuning in to his rambling, hourlong movies, is by far probably the most trenchant and damaging.
Among the many unproven accusations he has tossed out are the unlawful seizure of a marina by a authorities insider and the following use of it for drug trafficking; the demise of a girl who filed a grievance of sexual assault towards a well-placed A.Ok.P. lawmaker; and even crimes that he stated he dedicated himself on the behest of senior officers, akin to instigating the assault of a former A.Ok.P. lawmaker, threatening college lecturers who signed a peace petition, and aiding Mr. Soylu, the inside minister, in his rivalry towards Mr. Albayrak, Mr. Erdogan’s son-in-law.
Lots of the allegations had been directed towards the previous inside minister, Mr. Agar, and his son, who’ve each rejected the claims as baseless. The police have stated that the lady who filed the sexual assault case had died in a suicide.
In an interview with the Turkish day by day Cumhuriyet, Fikri Saglar, a former lawmaker, stated, “We will name this the second Susurluk incident.” Mr. Saglar was a member of the parliamentary committee that investigated the Nineteen Nineties scandal.
“It could be extra critical,” he added. “Susurluk was just like the foundations of exposing relations between politicians-mafia-the state, now traces of what this institution has been doing are revealed.”
