I've been hearing about a huge corruption scandal touching the top echelons of Erdogan's party and government, and that Erdogan fights it by sacking police chiefs and blabbering about international conspiracy to smear his party. I don't really understand what's going on, but it doesn't look like the rule of law and the separation of the party from the state is really respected in Turkey. I hear even the EU has taken noticed and urged Turkey to deal with this in a transparent manner. Anybody here (tailless?) to elucidate?
