Turkey fires 7,400 civil servants after failed coup
    2017-July-17  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

ALMOST 7,400 police, soldiers, civil servants and academics have been dismissed from their posts in Turkey as the country marked one year since an attempted coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Saturday.

Erdogan joined a massive, flag-waving crowd near the iconic July 15 Martyrs’ Bridge in Istanbul to remember 250 people who died July 15, 2016 resisting the coup.

Turkish soldiers attempted to overthrow the government and the president using tanks, warplanes and helicopters July 15, 2016. The coup plotters declared their seizure of power on the state broadcaster, bombed the country’s parliament and other key locations, and raided an Aegean resort where Erdogan had been on vacation.

Turkey blames U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen for orchestrating the coup and infiltrating state institutions.

In the aftermath of the coup attempt, Turkey declared a state of emergency that has been in place ever since, which has allowed the government to rule by decree and to dismiss tens of thousands of people from their jobs. More than 50,000 people have also been arrested for alleged links to Gulen and other groups.

Addressing thousands of people outside of the parliament’s building, Erdogan said the country’s highest security advisory body would consider further extending the state of emergency. He said the failed coup had allowed Turkey to distinguish its friends from its foes but would not name the countries saying he wanted to avoid “a serious international crisis.”

In the latest government decree published Friday evening, 7,395 more state employees were fired, including teachers, academics, military and police officers, bringing the number of dismissed to more than 110,000. (SD-Agencies)
