Corrupt-son ministers should resign: Demirtas

20-12-2013 – KURDPRESS / MESOP – The co- Leader of Pro- Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP), Selahattin Demirtas, demanded the resignation of Turkey ministers whose sons have been arrested on corruption charges in recent days, CNNTurk said.

“A Government that bargains with workers and clears over a few Krosh (a Turkey small unit of money) is indulged in a big corruption. Billions of dollars of the country’s wealth has been seized. The government is needed to take quick actions,” Demirtas said, offering that Turkey Interior Minister Mummar Guler, Economy Minister Zafar Caglayan and Environment Minister Erdogan Bayraqdar resign quickly to secure justice in the recent corruption cases.

It’s not important where the ministers and officials are affiliated with Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan or the followers of Turkish religious Leader Fathula Gulen, but the details of the case should be revealed soon, he went on to say. Demirtas further warned the political and judiciary importance of the case should not affect on Turkey peace talk with the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).52 Turkey officials, economic activists and sons of three ministers were arrested two days ago for corrupting and abusing the country’s economic sources.
