A Turkish court has ordered the arrest of the Democratic Development Party (DGP) provincial chairman of Muğla – a city in the south-western Turkey – for drug trafficking.
The narcotics police team seized 250 ecstasy pills during an investigation on Tuesday, detaining two men on drug trafficking charges.
The seizure occurred after the police stopped and searched a car as it departed the city of İzmir, finding 250 ecstasy pills.
Among those detained were Gökhan Kömürcü and Mustafa Şan, Democratic Development Party's (DGP) provincial chairman of Muğla. The detainees were referred to Muğla Courthouse on Tuesday and were subsequently arrested by the court.
Turkey's Democratic Development Party was established on November 4 by the Gülenist deputy İdris Bal, who parted ways with the ruling AK Party following the December 17 and December 25 operations. The operations were allegedly carried out by members of the Gülen Movement, who infiltrated the police and judiciary with the aim of overthrowing the government in late 2013.
Turkish officials have reiterated that Gülenists, who formed an illegal structure within the government, should find legal ways to be engaged in politics in Turkey, one of which is the formation of a political party.
