Timur Karakaş, a German-language teacher who was fired from his job after a coup attempt in July 2016, died on Friday.

He was 39.

According to pro-Kurdish HDP deputy Ömer Faruk Gergerlioğlu, upon his dismissal from his job, Karakaş had worked as a delivery man for over two year.

He will be laid to rest in his hometown of Gölcük.

“Even though the court acquitted him of all the accusiations, he was not reinstated to his job. He could not take the injustice that was doneto him,” Gergerlioglu said.

Turkey survived a military coup attempt on July 15, 2016 and an ensuing crackdown has left thousands of victims behind. More than 510,000 people have been detained and some 100,000 including academics, judges, doctors, teachers, lawyers, students, policemen and many from different backgrounds have been put in pre-trial detention.
