Legal proceedings will be taken against former Prime Minister Huseyin Ozgurgun, the Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office has said.
In September, this year, a specially formed parliamentary committee convened for eight hours to decide whether or not to lift Mr. Ozgurgun’s immunity.
Following the decision, the former prime minister’s assets have been frozen and he may not make any transaction regarding his immovable property.

The process to lift his immunity took 18 months with a final decision made last month.
