DOGAN I guess it reeks of incompetence since they were not held in prison for years without bail? The AKP had the government of Ismir raided? How is that different? And what was the outcome? Owe you one? Is that how it goes? Is Turkey like a school yard bully who keeps score? Childish. Spot on! FARUK Most Turks don't know it is illegal and unethhical to evade the payment of taxes.

This heavy handed treatment of Turkish Airlines is nothing short of political manouvering.Its a very serious matter to have the offices of a bona fide company raided by the serious fraud squad and its usually done when the government is absolutely sure of transgression.The fact that the Turkish officials were immediately released reeks of either incompetence or political overtones by the Israelis.We owe you one Israel!!!
