Warrants issued for 68 executives of the 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 68 people who worked at 6 unions, all affiliated with the Aksiyon Business Confederation (Aksiyon Is).

Police carried out operations to detain suspects in 11 provinces as part of the investigation, Anadolu said.

The government blames Gulenists for the 2016 failed coup while the latter denies involvement.
