ANKARA - A top Turkish court blocked a government-ordered regulation that police disclose investigations to their superiors, privately owned NTV news channel said on Friday.

The regulation, issued on Dec. 21 after police went public with a graft case involving the sons of several cabinet ministers and the head of a state-run bank, was criticized by many Turks as a bid to limit damage from the scandal.
