ANKARA, Dec 26 (Reuters) - A Turkish prosecutor who went public on Thursday with allegations of police obstruction in a high-level corruption case had himself mishandled the proceedings and was therefore removed, his superior said.

Turhan Colakkadi, Istanbul's chief prosecutor, told reporters Muammer Akkas had leaked information to the media and had not given superiors timely updates on the case as required. (Reporting by Ece Toksabay and Humeyra Pamuk; Editing by Mark Trevelyan)
