A treason investigation has been launched against a Turkish MP who alleged in an exclusive interview with RT that ISIS delivered deadly sarin gas to Syria through Turkey.
Ankara’s Chief Prosecutor’s Office case against Istanbul MP Eren Erdem of Republican People’s Party (CHP) was launched immediately after an interview he gave Monday about sarin was aired on RT.
Chemical weapon materials were brought to Turkey and put together in ISIS camps in Syria, which was known as the Iraqi Al-Qaeda at that time.”
Erdem claims that materials used for the production of chemical weapons did not originate from Turkey.
“All basic materials are purchased from Europe. Western institutions should question themselves about these relations. Western sources know very well who carried out the sarin gas attack in Syria,” Erdem told RT.
On Thursday, the prosecutor’s office is sending a summary of proceedings to the Ministry of Justice. This summary should then be sent to the Turkish parliament, which could vote to strip Erdem of his immunity.
As for the accused Turkish businessmen involved in supplying the sarin gas and other materials needed for creating ISIS chemical weapons, Erdem claims the evidence is based on the results of a 2013 Turkish court investigation.
