World Bulletin / News Desk 

Twenty-three guards were removed from their posts in the Prime Ministry's Security Department on Tuesday.  

The removal comes after the wire-tapping report which was prepared by the supervisory board. 

The deposed guards were working to guard the Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. 

The investigation on wire-tapping launched in February 2012 and conducted by the employee crimes department, was transferred after being considered within the spectrum of crimes against “state security.”

Erdogan announced on a live TV program in December 2012 that he had discovered his office had been bugged.

The Prime Ministry's Security Department decided to set up a new unit to check for bugs and other covert listening devices in buildings used by the prime minister.
