Hürriyet PhotoA forensic report on a graft probe started last year has said the transcribed documents and tape recordings of the telephone conversations between the high-profile suspects are consistent.
The forensic department examined the 2,593 voice recordings of the telephone conversations of the suspects in the Dec. 17, 2013 graft probe, including four former Cabinet members Zafer Çağlayan, Egemen Bağış, Muammer Güler and Erdoğan Bayraktar.
The report dated on April 29, 2014 said the 2,483 examined recordings were in Turkish, but 100 recordings were not examined as they were in a foreign language.
“No changes that might change the meaning of the sentences were detected in the examined documents,” said the report. The phone conversation recordings were transcribed by the police officials and sent to the parliamentary commission set up to investigate the graft probe.
