The Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office for the Prosecution of Organized Crime and Corruption strongly condemns the publication of illegally obtained documents from the investigation into the “Racket” case, which, except as an instant sensation, do not contribute to any other purpose.
Since the launch of the investigation, driven by the high public interest, the prosecution puts efforts on a daily basis to share details that would not harm the investigation and to provide the public with a realistic picture of the course of the investigation. In this regard, given the sensitivity of the case, we repeatedly point out that only the officially obtained information from the prosecution is accurate.
The prosecution will not comment on the information made public, but will point out that the disclosure of classified information by individuals is a danger and harm to the overall social system and is a criminal offense. Leaking such documents violates the presumption of innocence, endangers the lives of those involved, and complicates the process overall.
In the interest of the further smooth conduct of the investigative procedure, the Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office for the Prosecution of Organized Crime and Corruption will take action to establish the facts how these documents were leaked to the public and will require the perpetrators to be held accountable.
The Basic Public Prosecutor’s Office for the Prosecution of Organized Crime and Corruption points out to the public that such irresponsible sources of information and limited media will not affect the prosecution’s determination to bring this case to a complete conclusion. All the more so as behind the outcome of this case stands the dedication and energy of the prosecution determined to justify its name and stand in the way of corruption.
