Baku, Azerbaijan, April 8
By Rufiz Hafizoglu - Trend:
One more man was detained on the case of disclosing the details of the Turkish power structures' secret meetings.
The operation on the detention of the suspected person was conducted with the participation of Turkish national intelligence employees, the Turkish Sabah newspaper quoted the diplomatic sources as saying.
It was also reported that the detainee is a supporter of the Gülen movement [Islamic public figure who currently resides in the United States] and the Foreign Ministry`s employee.
Former Turkish intelligence officer Onder Aytac was arrested on March 29 on case disclosing the details of the Turkish power structures' secret meetings, who earlier made a statement during local TV broadcasting that Turkey is preparing to invade Syria.
The audio of a secret meeting on the situation in Syria which involved the heads of the intelligence service and the General Staff of the Turkish Armed Forces was uploaded on to YouTube on March 26. Subsequently YouTube access was blocked in Turkey.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc said that this leaking of information is in the interests of the Syrian regime, terrorist groups and Al Qaeda.
"This actually equates to a declaration of war," Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu said on March 28 while commenting on this situation.
"The country will do everything possible to reveal and punish the perpetrators of such acts," Davutoglu added.
Moreover, Davutoglu stressed that the wiretapping of the Turkish power structures conversation equates to espionage against the country.
