When a few weeks ago Turkish police unveiled in Antalya a chain of prostitutes exploited in Savarona – a yacht that once belonged to Ataturk – it said that there were many high-ranking officials among the arrested clients who were later released.
Citing Russian and Kazakh sources, local Turkish daily Vatan reports now that among them had also been OSCE Chairman-in-Office and Kazakhstan's Foreign Minister Kanat Saudabayev and Advisor to Kazakhstan's Prime Minister Birjan Muratali Ravshanov.
The paper mentions that the officials were immediately set free, and by using their diplomatic immunity they simply fled Turkey by a private jet.
Vatan further mentions that an unnamed representative of Kazakhstan's foreign ministry confirmed the news about Saudabayev's and Ravshanov's arrest in Turkey.
The newspaper also notes that Azerbaijani billionaire Telman Ismailov has also been in Savarona when the police raided the yacht.
