On the night of Friday, according to the newspaper “Hurriyat” numerous raids were carried out.

The prosecution accuses the suspect of being a follower of the preacher Fethullah Gulen, who lives in the US and is blamed by the Turkish government for trying to assassinate President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

In several waves of arrests, thousands of army members were arrested earlier.

On Thursday, Erdogan said Turkey would take further action to paralyze Gulen’s overseas financing system.

According to official figures from mid-November, about 218,000 people have been arrested in Turkey since 2016 because of the coup attempt. Almost 17,000 have since been convicted. More than 140,000 Turks were dismissed from the civil service.
