Turkish government has removed two deputy governors at the Yozgat Governor’s Office on the grounds that they had links to the Gülen movement.
A statement released by the Yozgat Governor’s Office said on Monday that deputy governors E.E. and D.E. have been removed from their posts due to an investigation launched into them on suspicion of being linked to the Gülen movement.
Turkey experienced a military coup attempt on July 15 that killed over 240 people and wounded more than a thousand others. Immediately after the putsch, the Justice and Development Party (AKP) government along with President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement.
The movement denies any involvement.
