Turkey: Arrest warrants out for 1,112 FETO suspects


Turkish prosecutors on Tuesday issued arrest warrants for 1,112 Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) suspects in a probe related to a leaked 2010 police exam paper.

The suspects are believed to have exam questions before sitting for the sub-inspector test, said the judicial sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on speaking to the media.

They leaked the exam paper in a bid to infiltrate the police force, the sources added.

The probe is being led by Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office with simultaneous nationwide operations launched by police.

FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 251 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary.
