ANKARA: A media industry group in Turkey says a court has issued an injunction halting the government's decision to bar journalists from police buildings.

Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government had imposed the restrictions last month amid media revelations of a massive corruption investigation that has ensnared former government ministers's sons.

Journalist groups protested the move, saying it amounted to a censorship of the scandal and took the decision to court, arguing it was unconstitutional.

The Turkish Journalists Association says Friday that an Istanbul court issued a temporary injunction overturning the government's decision until further deliberations on the case.

Two Cabinet ministers' sons and the head of a state-owned bank were arrested on bribery charges over the scandal involving alleged illicit money transfers to Iran and bribery for construction projects.
