Turkish Sports Ministry suspends 245 personnel

Turkish Sports Ministry suspends 245 personnel
Hundreds accused of having links to July 15 coup attempt

Turkey’s Ministry of Youth and Sports suspended 245 personnel on Wednesday amid a nationwide move against those suspected of having links to last Friday's military coup attempt.

Speaking during a live TV program, Minister Akif Kilic said that since Saturday 2,345 people have been relieved of duty as part of a "parallel state probe".

The moves come after last Friday’s coup attempt, during which at least 240 people were martyred and nearly 1,500 others injured.

The attempted coup has led to a wave of arrests and suspensions in military, judicial, police and civil service institutions.

The government has said the plot was organized by followers of U.S.-based preacher Fetullah Gulen.

Gulen is accused of a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through supporters within Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary, forming a ‘parallel state’.
