WikiLeaks releases 295.000 AKP emails, Turkey blocks access

Almost 295.000 email bodies were released late last night by WikiLeaks concerning Turkey’s AK party.

According to Wikileaks this is the first part of the AKP Email series and covers 762 mail boxes beginning with ‘A’ and running through to ‘I’.

The emails come from which is the primary domain of AKP, the party behind President Tayyip Erdogan.

The oldest emails date back to 2010 while the most recent one is dated July 6, 2016. As reported by WikiLeaks the majority of emails deal with international matters as opposed to more sensitive internal issues.

The information was obtained a week before Friday’s coup and the publication schedule was brought forward in response to Erdogan’s post-coup purges.

Wikileaks stresses that both the source and the information have been verified and are in no way connected to the attempted coup or to a rival political party or state.

Meanwhile Turkey’s Internet watchdog has blocked access to the WikiLeaks website in Turkey. The Telecommunications Communications Board said on Wednesday that an “administrative measure” had been taken against the website – the term it commonly uses when blocking access to sites.
