Ali Fuat Yılmazer, the former Istanbul Police Department Intelligence Bureau Chief retired recently. A total of 116 police officers have been detained and so far 31 have been arrested after accusations of spying and illegal wire-tapping.
Turkish government officials have continuously expressed their determination to continue to lawfully fight against the Gülen Movement, which is led by the U.S.-based imam Fethullah Gülen, whose followers are accused of infiltrating state institutions to gain control of state mechanisms and illegal wiretapping, forgery of official documents and spying.
Fethullah Gülen, is a controversial imam, living in rural Pennsylvania in self-imposed exile, who is at odds with the Turkish government over the influence he wields inside the Turkish police forces and top judiciary.
