Sentence will be to alphabetize the names of his cellmates.
In Izmir, the public prosecutor in Torbalı district, Z.K., said to
have taken bribes to have a criminal relieved of 3 arrest warrants,
has been arrested along with 4 other suspects. The Izmir Public
Prosecutor stated that Y.Y., wanted for 3 separate crimes, requested
help from Z.K. through A.A.
Z.K. and the other suspects were placed under surveillance and
Z.K., Y.Y. and A.A. were noted meeting on the Gaziemir-Balçova
highway. Police went into action and found 10,000 TL in Z.K.'s
car. The two others were taken into custody and, based on their
statements, F.K. and A.B. were arrested, as well. The 10,000 TL
was the first installment of a total bribe of 25,000 for Z.K. to
have the arrest warrants for Y.Y. squelched.
Z.K. was already in too deep when he tried this spoonful.
In a previous incident involving prosecutor Z.K., while he was en
route to Torbalı from Izmir on 1 March 2017, he was attacked
by two people as the result of a "yield right-of-way" dispute. The
assailants, who cut off Z.K. and smashed the front and rear
windows of his car with bats, were arrested by police. (!)
Izmir's Torbalı district is center-bottom.
