When these three kids finally got to see their imprisoned father again, cameras were rolling, and so were the tears.
A purge-victim Turkish man, named Enes Ordu, who had been in been in prison on terror and coup charges for several years, has recently been set free. The reunion between the man and his three children was captured on camera and the result was, well, pretty darn emotional.
The man is believed to had been jailed for alleged links to the Gulen group, which the Turkish government accuses of masterminding a coup attempt in 2016. The group denies any involvement. Following the coup attempt, the Turkish government launched a massive crackdown on followers of the Gulen group under the pretext of an anti-coup fight, as a result of which more than 150,000 people were removed from state jobs while in excess of 50,000 others were jailed and some 600,000 people have been investigated on allegations of terrorism.
TurkeyPurge editors cannot verify the authenticity of the video. However, many other videos showing similar reunions of purge-victim family members have been circulating nationwide since late 2017.
