Latest Wikileaks Dump Sheds New Light on Erdogan’s Power In Turkey

09 Dec

Wikileaks released over 57,000 emails of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s son-in-law, Berat Albayrak, who just happens to be Turkey’s minister of energy and natural resources. The emails showcase Albayrak’s strong influence in Turkey’s halls of power and reveal the inner workings of an increasingly oppressive government that many Western leaders struggle to understand.

The leak, sourced to a communist hacktivist group known as Redhack that has targeted the Turkish government in the past, span 16 years worth of what appears to be Albayrak’s personal emails from 2000 to 2016. Neither Albayrak nor the Turkish government has yet confirmed the authenticity of the leaks. But if the leaks are legitimate, Albayrak has a major PR headache on his hands.
