ISTANBUL - Anatolia News AgencyA group of main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) lawmakers, including deputy leader Gürsel Tekin, has filed a legal complaint about Interior Minister Muammer Güler, Istanbul Mayor Kadir Topbaş and some former politicians, claiming that large-scale fraud was going on in the city’s real estate sector.

‘Organized fraud’ map
“I have sent Mr. Prime Minister [Recep Tayyip Erdoğan] a map of organized fraud in Istanbul,” Tekin said, before submitting the complaint to an Istanbul prosecutor. “He is a former mayor. If he spares time to look at that map he will witness that Istanbul residents are facing real estate fraud that is handled by a gang, a first in the Republic’s history,” he said.
