Turkey issues arrest warrants for 28 people over alleged links to 2016 coup

Ankara, May 10: Turkish prosecutors issued arrest warrants on Tuesday to 28 suspects via a alleged link to a network accused of organizing a coup attempt in 2016.

The chief prosecutor in Ankara, the capital, has begun investigating the alleged leak of military school exam questions by members of the Gulen movement, the state-owned TRT broadcaster reported. Turkey’s annual inflation rate reached a record high of 61.14%, and the currency lira has lost 60% of its value since 2021.

The Turkish government has accused the Gulen movement of invading the state’s bureaucracy before attempting a coup on July 15, 2016. Turkish police are raiding in 12 states as part of an Ankara-based operation.

Turkey has accused group members of fraud in a trial used as a foothold for public sector intruders. The government also claims that members of the Gulen movement at military schools helped new employees pass admission interviews.

The Gülen movement is led and named by the Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen. Fethullah Gülen is considered a spiritual leader by his followers. Turkey accuses U.S.-based Gulen of masterminding a 2016 coup that has cracked down on suspects related to the movement on a large scale since at least 250 people were killed and the coup failed. ..

Washington was reluctant to hand over the self-exiled Glen because of the lack of solid evidence from Ankara to the Islamic clergy.
