Description

This book strives to explain what has happened in Turkey in 2013 and 2014 following the onset of major corruption investigations incriminating people close to the Turkish President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, including his son Bilal Erdogan, various ministers, and several business people. It shows how veteran police chiefs, previously hailed as heroes and awarded with letters of recognition by Erdogan himself, suddenly turned into villains after they exposed an unprecedented graft network within the Turkish government. The book reveals that the so-called parallel structure, which was invented by Erdogan as part of global conspiracy, is nothing but a slanderous farce used to distort facts, shift blame, and scapegoats for Erdogan's own troubles.
