In an indictment prepared by the Bakırköy Prosecutor's Office of Istanbul, prosecutors are pursuing a three-year jail term for Gülen Movement-affliliated prosecutor Celal Kara, who is among those accused of attempting to overthrow the elected government in 2013.
The Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors's (HSYK) second chamber on March 3 agreed to start an investigation against Kara and two other Gülen Movement-linked prosecutors. Following this decision, the case was forwarded to Bakırköy Prosecutor's Office, which has recently completed an indictment against Kara, accusing him of misusing his post and power.
The indictment has been sent to Bakırköy 16th High Criminal Court, and if the court accepts the indictment, the case will be forwarded to the Supreme Court of Appeals, which tries prosecutors and judges.
An HSYK investigators' report stresses that Akkaş carried out numerous irregularities that led to the detention of many people. Suspects were detained while no evidence was found in 22 files, for which Akkaş gave detention requests without examining bags of sealed documents. Akkaş is accused of preparing a quickly-written indictment before conducting an examination based on evidence. Other than wiretapped recordings, the authenticity of which has not been confirmed, Akkaş was not able to provide solid evidence. The report also says no documents or files were found on the transactions and tenders that were related to an alleged corruption.
Justice Minister and Chairman of the Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK) Kenan İpek said in a written statement on Tuesday that an office of the HSYK had opened a file and ruled that an inspector should investigate the claims that certain Gülen Movement judges and prosecutors formed a "parallel judicial power" within the country's judiciary as extensions of the Gülenist structure within state institutions.
The statement described the Gülen Movement's infiltration as an "organization that targets those who express dissent, implements the decisions taken by senior executives of the organization upon intelligence gathered via the police department and the judiciary and behaves unjustly toward several individuals using judiciary power, regardless of their innocence."
The government has long held that an alleged structure of bureaucrats and senior officials is embedded in the country's institutions, including the judiciary and the police, and is plotting to undermine the government.
