34 military members sought by Turkish prosecutor over Gülen links

0

The Kayseri Chief Public Prosecutor’s office on Wednesday issued detention warrants for 34 military members as part of a post-coup crackdown targeting followers of the Gülen movement, the state-run Anadolu new agency reported.

The prosecutor accused the suspects of using pay phones to maintain ties with the movement.

The report did not specify how many of the individuals being sought had been detained.

Ankara believes the Gülen movement orchestrated a coup attempt in 2016, although it denies any involvement.

Some 140,000 public servants have been dismissed, and over 600,000 people have been investigated over Gülen links since the abortive putsch.
