A covert listening device has been discovered at the headquarters of the main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) in Ankara.
The bugging device was found in the office of Algan Hacaloğlu, the CHP’s assistant secretary- general, earlier this week by his secretary. The CHP’s chief accountant, Mustafa Özyürek, said on Tuesday that experts were examining the device.
“Our party has nothing to hide from anybody. But, wiretapping an individual is an insult to human rights and the freedom of communication. The government should prevent illegal wiretapping activities,” Özyürek stated. He said they had not filed a complaint with police over their discovery.
