Turkey has launched a probe into a former and a current U.S. prosecutors who are currently involved in a case against Turkish citizens in New York.

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

The U.S. 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.
