A former top judge who was jailed as part of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s post-coup crackdown has been sentenced to 10 years in prison.

Former Supreme Court of Appeals member Mustafa Akarsu was convicted of membership to the Gulen movement, a broadened terror charge the Turkish government often uses to imprison its critics.

Akarsu was first given 8 years in jail, Anadolu news agency reported, the court in charge increased his sentence to over 12 years using discretionary power in compliance with the anti-terror law, and then reduced it to 10 years due to Akarsu’s good conduct during hearings.

Turkish government accuses the movement of masterminding the July 15, 2016 failed coup while the latter denies involvement.
