A total of nine academics and university personnel from Isparta’s Süleyman Demirel University were arrested over coup charges, bringing up the already high-number of arrested faculty members jailed over their alleged ties to the July 15 failed coup bid.

Police detained 35 university staff and academics from SDU, on August 27. While 10 of them were previously arrested, another 9 were put behind bars, on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, 23 other faculty members and university staff at Bursa’s Uludağ University were detained, on the same day.

Nearly 23,000 people from all walks of life have been under arrest since the failed coup attempt.
