An 80-year-old Turkish man with walking and speaking difficulties was handcuffed and detained by Turkish police on Sept. 1 over suspected links to the Gülen movement, which the Turkish government accuses of masterminding a July 15 coup attempt. 

Mustafa Türk was reportedly taken by police from his house in Turgutlu, Manisa province, handcuffed and driven to a police station for interrogation.

 His relatives described it as “degrading and barbaric” treatment.
