Seventeen individuals were arrested by an İzmir court early on Friday on charges of causing financial damage to the state, bid rigging and fraud.
 

They were among the 44 İzmir municipal officials and personnel who were detained earlier this week over allegations of bribery and engaging in illegal transactions following a raid.

The suspects were taken into custody following a police raid at the offices of the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality and the Karabağlar Municipality, both run by the Republican People´s Party (CHP). The searches were carried out by the İzmir Police Department´s Anti-smuggling and Organized Crime Bureau early on Monday morning.

Police officers seized a number of documents during the search and detainees were taken in for questioning on corruption and bid rigging claims. Ten of them were released after an initial interrogation by the police while 34 were referred to court on Thursday. The court ruled to release 17 of them while arrested the remaining 17 on charges of causing financial damage to the state, bid rigging and fraud.

İzmir Municipality Secretary-General Pervin Şenel Genç and Karabağlar Deputy Mayor Mehmet Hulusi Gülşen are among those who were put behind bars.

According to police, the operation came after an order by a specially authorized prosecutor in İzmir and the İzmir 10th High Criminal Court following one year of monitoring of financial transactions by the İzmir Metropolitan Municipality and the Karabağlar Municipality
