Erdogan: Turkey does not need the EU

16 July 2017, 12:03 | Darnell Patrick

Turkish authorities pinned the blame for the coup attempt on Gulen nearly immediately after last year's dramatic events. A purge that the government had begun well before the failed putsch accelerated and has since ruined the lives of more than 200,000 people and counting.

More than 50,000 people have also been arrested for alleged links to US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen, who Turkey blames for orchestrating the failed coup, and other terror groups.

Police killed five Islamic State militants in a dawn raid on a house in the central city of Konya on Wednesday, the local governor's office said, adding that four police officers were slightly wounded.

Thousands are expected to turn out for "national unity marches" in Istanbul and Ankara over the weekend, and President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan will unveil the Martyrs' Memorial on an iconic Istanbul bridge to remember those who died opposing the coup.

He called for an independent global investigation of last year's coup attempt, which left 249 people dead.

According to the BBC report, some 160 media outlets had been closed down in Turkey and 2,500 journalists or media workers were sacked from their jobs.

"More and more African countries saw the danger and they are taking measures". On Friday, Erdogan announced his plans to extend the nation's state of emergency for another three months, citing "the current outlook" in Turkey as grounds for continued security.

Moreover, a restored death penalty could not be imposed retroactively on people convicted for taking part in the coup.

FETO is accused of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.

A commemoration service was also held to thank people for support after the failed coup attempt, Consul General of Turkey in Mumbai Erdal Sabri Ergen told reporters. The Erdogan administration placed billboards in Istanbul that contain images of significant events, including the surrender of opposition troops.

"We are still struggling to overcome this threat to our country because it was a major trauma for the Turkish people", he said.

Hundreds of journalists from around the world are being hosted by the Directorate of Press and Information under the Republic of Turkey's Prime Ministry to get a better picture of what happened on July 15 past year and the government's subsequent handling of its aftermath.
