Following allegations of corruption on national television, the board of the Turkish state alcohol and tobacco company TEKEL have launched an investigation into its own transactions for the last five years.

The television programme leveled claims of serious illegalities amongst members of the TEKEL general directorate.

In a statement yesterday the company said: "The claims are being investigated. A report into alleged illegalities in tobacco purchases written on 30 October 2002 has been submitted to the authorities in Ankara and an investigation is in preparation."

TEKEL is scheduled for rapid privatisation under an IMF backed government economic programme.
