Abstract

On December 17th, Turkish police detained around 50 individuals accused of corruption and bribery. The scandal , which implicated Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, was that the arrested ranged from sons of government ministers to political allies in Turkey's financial sector. Thus began a new chapter in Mr Erdoğan’s battle between his movement and the Turkish "deep state" – pockets of the administration loyal to their own interests and, notably, not Mr Erdoğan’s.
