Warrants issued for 68 executives of some business unions that the government shuttered over ties to the Gulen movement in the wake of the July 15, 2016 failed coup.
State-run Anadolu news agency said Friday that the Ankara Public Prosecutor’s Office issued warrants for 62 people who worked at 5 unions, all affiliated with the Aksiyon Business Confederation (Aksiyon Is).
Police carried out operations to detain suspects in 7 provinces as part of the investigation, Anadolu said.
The government blames Gulenists for the 2016 failed coup while the latter denies involvement.
Some 160,000 people have passed through police custody and 60,000 were remanded in prison pending trial over Gulen links so far.
