According to media reports, a court in the Turkish province of Mugla sentenced 31 people to life imprisonment for the attempted attack on President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

There were 47 supporters of the opposition preacher Fethullah Gulen in the case, three of them were put on the wanted list.

A coup attempt, which mainly involved members of the army, took place across the country on July 15, 2016. Most of the struggle happened in the capital Ankara and in Istanbul. More than 240 Turkish citizens were killed and over 2,000 wounded during the unsuccessful military takeover.

The Turkish government has accused Gulen, who is living in the United States, of involvement in the coup and demanded his extradition to Turkey. More than 50,000 people were arrested and 100,000 dismissed or suspended from their jobs within the post-coup crackdown inside Turkey.
