Turkey removes 1,218 gendarmerie from duty – interior ministry official

Filed under: News in English |

Turkey suspended 1,218 gendarmerie personnel on Thursday, an official from the interior ministry overseeing the force said, as part of investigations into a failed coup in July.

Turkey has already sacked or suspended more than 110,000 civil servants, judges, prosecutors, soldiers and others over suspected links with the network of Fethullah Gulen, a U.S.-based cleric blamed by Ankara for orchestrating the failed coup.
