Istanbul Police Tuesday seized unprocessed uncooked diamonds with a market worth of TL 20 million ($1 million), estimated to be 61.38 carats, throughout an operation within the Grand Bazaar – one of many historic commerce facilities of Istanbul.
In line with the preliminary experiences, the Istanbul Police Division and the Division of Combating Monetary Crimes acquired a tipoff hinting on the smuggling of diamonds within the historic Grand Bazaar, Istanbul.
Following the investigation, undercover cops began a follow-up across the bazaar on April 12. They detained 4 overseas nationwide suspects with the initials M.M.D., M.F.M., M.A., and A.A., who had been later recognized as prospects and enterprise house owners.
Launching the operation after the judicial determination, the Istanbul Monetary Department Police raided the office.
It was decided that the seized diamond was dropped at Türkiye illegally through Africa, marking it probably the most vital diamond operations within the nation’s historical past.
