A total of nine teachers who used to work for a private college, linked to the Gulen movement, were detained on Tuesday.
The suspects, earlier removed from their jobs under emergency rule, were rounded up as part of a post-coup probe in Mugla’s resort district of Bodrum.
Once teachers at the movement-linked Merter Anatolian High School, the suspects are accused of money deposits in Bank Asya, the Islamic lender that was shuttered by the government over Gulen ties.
The government has already detained more than 125,000 people since the July 15, 2016 coup attempt as it blames the movement for the incident. Meanwhile, the movement denies involvement.
