Turkish coup d'état attempt
When I say asking for evidence about the role of Gülenists in the failed coup amounts to insulting Turkey, I am not talking about the U.S. authorities asking for official proof to consider Ankara's request for Fethullah Gülen's extradition.
Everyone agrees that if the coup attempt on July 15 had succeeded, Turkey's economy would have gone into a tailspin. The steps taken by the government under its "emergency rule," however, also appear to be achieving the same result.
Turkish security services have prepared a new list of 20,000 people who are suspected of being members of the organisation of Fethullah Gulen.
The list has been drafted on the basis of the ByLock application. The authorities claim that the application was used for communication by the members of the so-called Fethullahist terrorist organisation.
