Turkey: 100’s of Soldiers Detained Over Alleged Links to Gulen

Turkish prosecutors have ordered the detention of some 100 soldiers over suspected links to the network of a United States-based Muslim religious leader and businessman, Fethullah Gulen, who has been accused of orchestrating the failed coup in 2016. The detentions are the result of investigations into pay phone communications between alleged members of Gulen's network.

Turkish police have conducted a steady stream of raids against Gulen's alleged supporters since the July 2016 coup attempt, in which hundreds of people were killed. Gulen denies involvement in the attempt. More than 77,000 people have been jailed, pending trial, while 150,000 civil servants, military personnel and others have been sacked or suspended from their jobs as part of the post-coup purges. Widespread operations are still routine.

Those operating or residing in Turkey are advised to be aware of the current security and political climate and of heightened tensions amid a prolonged crackdown. Further purges of the police, judiciary and police are likely to continue. Limit your exposure to military installations and government buildings and refrain from discussing politics in public spaces.
