ankara - A Turkish prosecutor ordered seventy soldiers and former soldiers to be arrested. The police then went in search of the suspects in 27 provinces. They are suspected of links with the organization of the spiritual Fethullah Gülen, said an initiate against state press agency Anadolu.
The Turkish government is responsible for the move of Gülen, who is living in the United States, for the failed coup in 2016. At that time, insurgent soldiers tried unsuccessfully to dismiss President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his government. Hundreds of people died at the coup attempt. Gülen denies all involvement.
