Turkey's intelligence agency is already on top of the alleged bugging of PM Erdogan's office, Turkish news agencies reported.
Turkey's National Intelligence Agency (MIT) had already launched a massive investigation into alleged wiretapping devices found in Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's Ankara office before the premier publicized the discovery on Dec. 22, official sources confirmed yesterday.
The spy agency reportedly first learned in February that Erdogan was being listened to.
"This is not a recent event. MIT was informed of the bugs before the incident was revealed and an investigation was already launched into it. This was a secret that was being kept until Erdogan himself announced in a television interview that he had been listened to," a source speaking on condition of anonymity told the Hurriyet Daily News yesterday.
MIT's press department said they could not give any official information and neither confirmed nor denied the claims.
