Turkish parliament gives government more control over judiciary
Turkey's parliament approved a law giving the government more control over the appointment of judges and prosecutors on Saturday, after a heated debate and a brawl in which an opposition lawmaker was hospitalized.

 

The battle for control of the Higher Council of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK), the body which appoints senior members of the judiciary, lies at the heart of a feud between Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan and US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen. (Reuters)
