Police in Istanbul has detained a group of 9 persons, 4 of them Bulgarian citizens, engaged in producing illegal liquor.

They found two facilities for alcohol destilation and two storages where they found 200,000 fake labels and excise tax bands, 63 cartons of ready alcohol, as well as 100,000 empty bottles and 20 barrels of ethyl alcohol.
