A Bolu couple, both teachers, has been arrested after 9 months in hiding on Apr 23.

H.H. and his wife Z.H. were earlier given 7.5 years of prison sentence each on accusation of membership to the Gulen movement.

A Bolu prosecutor has issued arrest warrants for the couple as they failed to turn themselves in over the past 9 months.

Police arrested the couple in a house they have been reportedly in hiding for months with fake IDs found on them.

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

More than 150,000 have been detained and over 80,000 people have been arrested over Gulen links so far.
