ANKARA, December 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Turkish Economy Minister Zafer Caglayan has resigned on Wednesday, CNN Turk TV channel reported on Wednesday. The outlet previously noted that the minister's son was involved in corruption affray.
The TV channel added that the main reason for the resignation became the arrest of the minister’s son. Salih Kann Caglayan, one of the employees of state-owned Halk Bankasi bank, who has been detained last week by the police, faces corruption charges, the TV channel reports.
Later it was reported that Interior Minister Muammer Guler also resigned after Zafer Caglayan for the same reasons. Guler said that “recognizes the harm that may be caused to the government” and expressed his willingness to resign.
December 17, the Office for combating finance crimes during an operation dubbed “Large bribe” detained over 50 suspects, including sons of interior affairs minister and economy minister, as well as the son of minister for the environment and urban development.
