At least 408 Turkish citizens claimed asylum in Switzerland in the aftermath of the July 15, 2016 coup attempt, according to Reuters.

In response to a parliamentary inquiry, Swiss State Secretariat for Migration 408 Turkish citizens sought asylum since the July coup attempt, including some holders of diplomatic passports, Reuters reported.

Turkey survived a military coup attempt on July 15, last year, after which the government launched an all-out war against its dissidents, especially the Gülen movement, Kurdish minority and academics from many different backgrounds.

Germany said last week that the number of Turkish citizens who fled Turkey following a failed coup last year and applied for asylum in Germany reached 620 in July.
