Turkey’s main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) has received the complaints of around 30,000 people negatively affected by the ongoing purge in Turkey against the members of the Gulen movement, a CHP official has said.

“We have held face-to-face meetings with more than 4,000 people in the last two months. We have also received appeals via e-mail and telephone,” CHP Party Assembly member Gamze Taşçıer told daily Cumhuriyet on Sept. 14.

Taşçıer said the number of cases that the party has recorded since July 15 is currently around 30,000, showing that the government’s sweeping actions are creating a new group of victims.
