The arrests came late on Thursday, a day after the High Criminal Court No:2 in the southern district of Tarsus issued arrest warrants for Adana's former provincial gendarmerie (rural police) commander Özkan Cokay, former chief public prosecutor Süleyman Bağrıyanık plus prosecutors Özcan Şişman, Aziz Takci and Ahmet Karaca.
They were brought to prison after a court hearing on Thursday.Earlier this year, the Turkish Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK) suspended the prosecutors from duty. The board then announced that it decided to suspend prosecutors Süleyman Bağrıyanık, Ahmet Karaca, Aziz Takcı, Özcan Şişman and Yaşar Kavalcıklıoğlu until the investigation is completed.
