ISTANBUL (Reuters) - A Turkish prosecutor has completed an indictment regarding graft allegations which became public with police raids in December in which three cabinet ministers' sons were detained, a deputy chief prosecutor in Istanbul told Reuters on Friday.
Hasan Sozen said the indictment would be sent to the relevant court once it had been formally approved.
The ministers' sons and businessmen close to Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan were detained in the raids on December 17. The three ministers resigned after the raids. They have denied any wrongdoing.
Erdogan says the corruption inquiry has been orchestrated by political enemies in a bid to undermine him ahead of local elections this month and presidential polls in the summer.
