Turkey has launched a probe into a former and a current US prosecutors who are currently involved in a case against Turkish citizens in New York, Anadolu reported November 18.

The Istanbul Public Prosecutor's Office on Saturday accused former US prosecutor Preet Bharara and current US prosecutor Joon H. Kim of using information and documents from previous investigations in Turkey for an ongoing case in the US.

The US prosecutors had obtained some voice recordings and other fake documents from unknown persons instead of official channels, which was contrary to international law, for building their case against Turkish citizens in America, according to Istanbul Public Prosecutor's Office.
