In two recordings published on, Former Chief of General Staff Işık Koşaner is heard making several contraversial statements, including recounting that the military had violated the law in its fight against the PKK and confirming the authenticity of certain documents that describe the Sledgehammer Coup Plot. This week, it was reported that Koşaner admitted the voice belonged to him.

Many of the published conversations are from discussions he had with other high-level state officials and speeches he made during his visits to various units. Some are calling for an inquiry into some of the statements, but Koşaner insists that he made most those statements only in an effort to help the military “learn from its mistakes.”
