Prosecutors overseeing the case against 16 Turkish citizens who took part in the 2013 Gezi Park protests have included phone records of a conversation between one defendant and an individual that appears to be Yuri Kim, the currently serving director of the U.S. State Department’s Office of Southern European Affairs.
The indictment includes a large number of tapped phone records and other evidence involving foreign activists and officials, including a large section devoted to former European Union ambassador to Ankara Marc Pierini.
