A Kayseri court sentenced a computer science professor, identified as K.A.P., to 6 year and 3 months in prison over terror charges.

A former academic at the now-defunct Meliksah University, the professor was standing trial without arrest as part of an investigation into the Gulen movement

Media reported Tuesday that the evidence against him include his alleged use of ByLock mobile app and his money transactions at Bank Asya.

K.A.P. was convicted of membership to the Gulen movement which the Turkish government considers a terror group.

Turkish government blames Gulenists for the July 15, 2016 failed coup while the group denies involvement in the coup and any terror activities.

More than 150,000 have passed through police custody and 90,000 have been arrested over ties to the movement since the summer of 2016. Meanwhile, over 150,000 people have lost their jobs during the same period.
