Turkish authorities dismissed from the police  350 officers  in Ankara, according to the Turkish Hurriyet Daily News. It  has become the response  of Erdogan's government  to investigations against fellows of the  prime minister.

The dismissed police worked in departments responsible for combating terrorism, organized crime, financial and cyber crime , smuggling, as well as exploration.

 About 80 of the dismissed held senior positions. In particular, among them was the deputy head of the police in Ankara. Approximately 250 new police officers have been appointed to the vacant post. Thus, Erdogan’s  confrontation with the security forces  is entering a  new level.

Part of the detainees were released , but were detained sons  of Interior Minister, Muammer Guler, and Economy Minister, Zafer Caglayan , who was a top manager of a state “Halkbank.”
