Once one of the partners of the İzmir-based private FEM preparation schools, A.D. was detained while working as a packing man at a grill restaurant in Eshişehir province.

A Turkish court previously confiscated all properties belonging to A.D. as part of an investigation into the Gülen movement, which the government considers to be behind the July 15 coup attempt.

The FEM prep school he used to partly own was also shuttered down under Turkey’s post-coup emergency rule.

Rounded up while working at a grill shop in downtown Eskişehir, A.D. was ultimately put under pre-trial detention by a court order.

Turkey has already detained 90,000 people and arrested 44,000 over alleged or real links to the movement, which denies involvement in the coup attempt.

More than 123,000 people have lost their jobs at state institutions over the same charges since July 15.
