A Turkish parliamentary commission on Monday unexpectedly delayed until January a decision on whether four former Turkish cabinet ministers will stand trial on accusations of corruption that rocked the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.The parliamentary commission must decide whether or not to send the cases to the Supreme Council court, which only hears cases against cabinet ministers and other top officials.The corruption scandal also touched Erdogan himself, after leaked tapes emerged in February where he allegedly told his son Bilal to dispose of some 30 million euros ($37 million) in cash on the day of the December 17 police raids.A parliamentary source had told AFP on condition of anonymity earlier that the AKP, which holds the majority in parliament, was leaning towards sending the case of the ministers to court.
