A Kayseri physician, identified as H.H.Y., received a jail sentence of 3 years and 45 days on accusation of membership to the Gulen movement.

The government accuses the movement of masterminding the July 15 coup attempt and calls it a terrorist organization.

H.H.Y. was accused of using ByLock, a smartphone chatting application that the government claims to be the top communication tool among Gulen followers.
