ANKARA (Reuters) - Turkey's justice minister has told his U.S. counterpart that a former Turkish police investigator who testified at the trial of a Turkish banker in New York was wanted by Ankara and should be sent back to his country, justice ministry sources said.
Justice Minister Abdulhamit Gul said it was a scandal that Huseyin Korkmaz testified at the trial this week and that the case could damage relations between the two countries irreparably if actions were not taken, a letter from Gul cited by the sources said.
