Turkey PM vows action in 'fake' leaked recordings

ANKARA--Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Tuesday condemned leaked recordings of him and his son allegedly discussing how to hide large sums of money as a “vile attack” by rivals, as calls mounted for his beleaguered government to resign.

The phone conversations, posted on YouTube, allegedly reveal Erdogan asking his son Bilal to turn millions of euros in cash stashed at several houses into “zero.” Bilal at one point can be heard saying: “There is 30 million (US$41 million) euros more.”

The leaked discussions, which could not be independently verified, were said to have taken place on Dec. 17, the same day key Erdogan allies were caught up in police raids linked to a corruption investigation that has rocked the government.
