Istanbul Governor Hüseyin Avni Mutlu has refuted claims that the three people in white coats who were detained during protests were real doctors, via Twitter.

"The people with white doctor coats, who were thought to be helping injured people, were not doctors," Mutlu said.

"One of them has seven criminal records because of theft," he said in another tweet.

The police detained people in their white coats inside the Ramada Hotel, who were treating the injured protesters according to earlier reports, late June 15, after the police started another crackdown against the Gezi Park protesters and cleared the tents from the park.
