A woman and two men were arrested in the north in connection with the compromising video featuring Turkish Cypriot ‘prime minister’ Ersan Saner, while a new one,  involving another politician, released by alleged mafia boss Sedat Peker, who threatens to continue with the revelations.

According to Turkish Cypriot daily Yeniduzen the woman appearing in the video, released by Peker earlier in the week, showing Saner watching her taking off her clothes, was arrested on Thursday in Famagusta. Two men were also arrested in connection with the case. They were all remanded on Friday for three days.

Saner, who denies any wrongdoing, stating he was edited into the video in a framing attempt, reported the case to the police.

In the meantime, Turkish national Peker, an alleged underworld figure who now lives in self-exile and who lately waged a war on Turkish Cypriot politicians accusing them of supporting the plot against him in Turkey by joining forces with drug lords and illegal bookmakers, released another compromising video on Thursday, this time featuring deputy head of the Democratic Party, Tozun Tunali. The video in question, however, is said to have circulated in the past through social media.

Peker, who has now become a social media sensation, started releasing videos earlier this year with allegations of corruption among top Turkish officials and links of some of them with drug trafficking and money laundering in the north.

On Thursday after releasing the second video, he said he was determined to rid the north of drug smugglers, adding that he will continue to release sexually explicit videos of the politicians who collaborate with these people.

Saner, serving as ‘prime minister’ and head of ruling National Unity Party (UBP) said he has started the revelation process on who is truly behind the video. He put it down to the UBP’s election conference set to take place at the end of the month. Though he had initially announced he would resign his post as ‘prime minister’, he later said he would consider his options after consulting his legal advisors.

Last May, Peker said in one of his videos that Turkish officials were behind the 1996 assassination of Turkish Cypriot journalist Kultu Adali in the north.
