A urology specialist at Yalova State Hospital until he was dismissed on Nov 22, 2016, Bedi Özbay has been sacked from his position again in a recent government decree.
Özbay’s name appeared in the list of those dismissed from public payroll in both government decree, No 677 and No 689. The first decree was published on Nov 22, 2016 while the latter was released only on Apr 29, 2017.
More than 130,000 people have lost their jobs as part of the government’s post-coup crackdown. In addition, nearly 50,000 were put under arrest in the aftermath of the July 15, 2016 coup attempt.
“Specialist doctor Bedi Özbay was dismissed in government decree No.677 on Nov. 22. It didn’t seem enough as he was dismissed one more time with the decree No 689 today. What a murky order, they have yet to find vent,” main opposition Republican Peoples’ Party (CHP) deputy Sezgin Tanrikulu tweeted on Apr 29.
