ISTANBUL — According to reports on Saturday, Prime Minister Erdoğan's attorneys have filed complaints to the Ankara Public Prosecutor's Office against Gülen Movement-linked journalist Emre Uslu, Önder Aytaç, a columnist and former police academy lecturer who was detained for questioning on Friday as well as Today's Zaman editor-in-chief Bülent Keneş and Zaman newspaper columnist Mehmet Kamış
The complaints filed against Uslu and Aytaç are in connection to the leakage of an illegal wiretapping of a high-level security meeting, while lawsuits are being sought for Keneş and Kamış for derogatory remarks posted on Twitter.
Attorneys also filed a case against the former head of the Istanbul police intelligence department Ali Fuat Yılmazer for certain claims made in regards to detainments in the Ergenekon case.
Erdoğan's attorneys are also requesting the court issue a travel ban for Yılmazer, Uslu and Aytaç.
Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan displayed a miraculous recovery on Saturday after cancelling two campaign events in Istanbul on Friday to adhere to doctor's orders to rest his vocal chords to prevent incurring permanent damage.
On Saturday, Erdoğan was to resume his final round of campaigning for Sunday's local elections at five locations in Istanbul, including rallies in Kartal, Maltepe and Atasehir.
