The İstanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's Office has said there is a lack of grounds for legal action in the alleged ties of Turkey's incumbent intelligence chief and four other National Intelligence Organization (MİT) officials with the Kurdish Communities Union (KCK).
In early March 2012, the İstanbul Public Prosecutor's Office sought special permission from the Prime Ministry to question National Intelligence Organization (MİT) Undersecretary Hakan Fidan and four other MİT officials in the investigation into the KCK, a Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK)-linked militant organization.
Prosecutors last year sought to hear Fidan's testimony regarding his involvement in the government's peace talks, called the Oslo talks, with the PKK in 2010. Almost a year on, Erdoğan has sent a written statement to the prosecutor's office turning down the request regarding Fidan.Güncelleme Tarihi: 22 Mart 2013, 16:22
