Turkish parliament speaker: Wiretappers acting both 'illegal and immoral'
The wiretapping of phonecalls is both 'illegal and immoral' according to Turkey's parliament speaker, Anadolu Agency reported.
Answering media questions after a reception Tuesday in Ankara, Cemil Cicek said: "These people (wiretappers) are acting illegally and immorally. These kind of things were never acceptable and will never be".
"We are going to have this [wiretapping] investigated juristically, not politically. Everybody needs to act according to the laws", Cicek said
When asked whether he was wiretapped as well, Cicek said: "Does it matter if it is me or another one? These are all illegal".
The recent revelations of eavesdropping are part of an ongoing political struggle that was sparked on December 17 following an anti-graft probe aimed at the government, which led to high-profile arrests.
The government called the probe a 'dirty plot' against it, constructed by a 'parallel state within the state' that it says was nestled within the judiciary and police force.
