Turkey Suspends 9K Police Personnel over Alleged Ties to July Coup
Local Editor

Turkey suspended more than 9,000 members of the country's police force as part of its post-coup crackdown.

Turkey Suspends 9K Police Personnel over Alleged Ties to July Coup

On Wednesday, CNN Turk reported that the law enforcement personnel were suspended for alleged ties to US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, who, Ankara claims orchestrated the failed putsch last year coup.

Turkey witnessed a coup attempt on July 15, 2016, when a faction of the Turkish military declared that the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was no more in charge of the country.

A few hours later, however, the coup was suppressed. Almost 250 people were killed and nearly 2,200 others wounded in the abortive coup.

Since then, Ankara has been engaged in suppressing the media and opposition groups, who were believed to have played a role in the failed putsch.

Over 40,000 people have been arrested and 120,000 others sacked or suspended from a wide range of professions, including soldiers, police, teachers, and public servants, over alleged links with terrorist groups.

Earlier in the day, Turkish authorities detained over 1,000 people over suspected ties to Gulen.
