(AA) – Turkish police on Monday detained more than 60 people suspected of involvement in irregularities in the country’s annual nationwide civil-service selection exam.
The arrests are in connection with purported problems with 2010’s Public Personnel Selection Examination, known by the initials KPSS in Turkey.
Ankara prosecutor’s office ordered the detention of a total of 82 suspects alleged to be involved in infiltrating and cheating on the 2010 test.
Following the order, Ankara security department’s anti-organized crime squad launched an operation in 14 provinces, including the capital, for the 82 suspects.
Those detained in other provinces will be sent to Ankara for questioning.
KPSS is an exam taken by candidates who would like to apply for appointments at public services as civil servants.
