in Saba Tumer's program at a studio in Ayazaga. The

The two traffic cops waited until Paris' interview was
over and then escorted her back to her hotel. The driver
of Paris' minibus used the security lane and paid no
attention to traffic lights and one-way signs. The news
of the two copy escorting Paris of their own volition
hit police headquarters like a bomb, with Istanbul Police
Chief Huseyin Capkin ordering an inquiry right away.
The two cops were relieved of their motorcycles
and assigned to watch duty in a service building. They
claimed that they did not benefit in any way by
providing the escort, noting that "Paris Hilton's
security group chief told us that 'it would be good
for Turkey's image if you help us out' so that's why
we did it. We didn't do it for any personal gain."
The policemen's penalty will be determined after an
administrative inquiry is completed.
