Kimse Yok Mu charity foundation’s local representative in Turkey’s Black Sea province of Corum, identified with his initials E.A., has been sentenced to 8 years and 9 months in prison.
Corum 2nd High Criminal Court handed over its verdict in a case involving E.A. and 20 others who are accused of having links to the Gulen movement. E.A. was given 8 years plus 9 months in prison on charge of membership to a terror group, media said Friday.
Turkish government accuses the movement of masterminding the July 15, 2016 coup attempt and calls it FETO, short for the alleged Fethullahist Terrorist Organization, while the group denies involvement in the failed attempt and any terror-related acts.
E.A. worked as the head of the Kimse Yok Mu office in Corum.
The Kimse Yok Mu Foundation, which was closed down by government decree in the aftermath of a failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016, used to function as the corporate body of aid and relief activities for the Gülen movement,
