An investigation was launched on Thursday by the Van Deputy Chief Public Prosecutor's Office after Justice and Development Party (AK Party) Deputy Chairman Hüseyin Çelik claimed that a bomb had been placed in his office in 1995 on the orders of a former governor of Van.
If a probe is launched following the investigation into Çelik's claim, AK Party's Deputy Chairman Hüseyin Çelik and the province's then governor Mahmut Yılbaş will be both asked to deliver statements to a court.
Speaking to reporters on Monday in Konya, where he was attending a party meeting on media, Çelik said it was then-Van Governor Yılbaş who ordered the bomb be placed in his office at Van's Yüzüncü Yıl University, where he was working as a lecturer.
