    A university president has been arrested on the grounds of corruption and irregularities over a tender to buy medical equipment. Following a three-month investigation the president of Van Yuzuncu Yil University, Professor Yucel Askin, has been arrested and is being accused of irregularities in the purchasing of medical equipment for the Research Hospital School of Medicine.

    The allegations surfaced three months prior, and a raid to Askin’s house resulted in his documents and computers being impounded. Askin was in Azerbaijan when the police paid the unexpected visit on July 14. A great amount of historical artifacts found in his home were also taken away.

    Public prosecution office then started the investigation on Askin on charges on “forming a crime organisation, corrupting a tender, fraud in official documents and smuggling historical artifacts”.

    Ninety-one days after his house was raided and an investigation was started, Askin was called in for his statement. Askin gave a statement at the judicial court for three hours and later on had to wait for eight hours before he was accepted to a hearing where he was formally arrested.
