"At the final stage, we wiretapped into phone calls of everyone close to the prime minister. The fabricated voice recordings were handed to Prosecutor Muammer Aktaş on December 17," the police officer added.Turkish government officials have continuously expressed their determination to continue to lawfully fight against the Gülen movement. Erdoğan has accused the US based imam with running a "parellel state" within the state. Erdoğan also accused the movement of being behind a series of recordings posted on the Internet suggesting the prime minister and his family members were engaged in corruption. The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey issued a report on the recordings, stating that the tape recordings posted on social media platforms allegedly belonging to the prime minister and his family, were fabricated by electronically cutting and pasting different syllables from different speeches under a single pool of voice recordings.
