0

An indictment prepared by an İstanbul public prosecutor is seeking aggravated life sentence and 15 years’ jail time for the editor-in-chief of the Haberdar news portal.

According to the Diken news portal, Said Sefa, who is currently abroad, is accused of attempting a military coup and being a leader of an armed terrorist organization.

He is also accused of being the owner of a Twitter account known as “Fuat Avni,” which has acted as a government whistleblower. Sefa denies any links to the Fuat Avni account.

The military coup attempt on July 15 killed over 240 people and wounded more than a thousand others. Immediately after the putsch, the government along with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement. The movement denies any involvement. (Turkey Purge)
