A lawyer for one of the detainees from the latest wave of the controversial Ergenekon case, was taken into custody Thursday, Turkish news agencies reported.

Police held Huseyin Buzoglu, the lawyer of detained retired Gen. Tuncer Kilinc, when he arrived to brief his client who is being held at Istanbul’s police headquarters.

Turkish police also conducted a search of the home of Buzoglu, who also represents another detainee, Ergun Poyraz, the Anatolian Agency earlier reported.
