Turkey launches body to probe post-coup purges from public posts

By our dpa-correspondent and Europe Online    auf Facebook posten  Auf Twitter posten  
Istanbul (dpa) - Turkish authorities on Monday launched a commission to investigate and weigh the factors leading to dismissals from public sector jobs in the wake of an attempted coup by members of the army last year.

More than 142,000 people had been purged from their jobs in the public sector and military under the state of emergency which went into effect following the aborted July 15, 2016, coup, according to the government.

The commission will receive objections from those purged to determine who can be re-employed or compensated, private broadcaster CNN Turk reported on Monday. The purged civil servants have two months to appeal the commission.

Thousands of purged civil servants had already appealed to the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) for redress. Last week, Turkey‘s Justice Ministry said that the court had rejected half of the nearly 25,000 such appeals made by Turkish citizens.

There was no immediate comment from the ECHR.

The government blames the coup on a US-based cleric, Fethullah Gulen, and says the purges are targeting his followers. Gulen denies all charges.
