Turkish Deputy PM Atalay: Wiretappers will be tried

KIRIKKALE - Turkish Deputy PM Besir Atalay confirmed Tuesday the Justice and Development (AK) Party government`s determination to take legal action against those who wiretapped around seven thousand people in Turkey.

"Those who wiretapped people illegally will be tried soon and will be made to pay for their illegal actions," said Atalay.

Speaking to a private TV channel he said "Since we, the members of the Justice and Development (AK) Party government, are political downtrods of coalition governments in the 1990s, we sought freedom and the role of civil society over statism ."

Atalay also re-iterated that the AK Party government is decisive in reaching a conclusive result in the Kurdish `solution process`.
