Turkey: 191 FETO-linked judges, prosecutors suspended

Ankara chief prosecutor’s office on Thursday launched a probe against more than 190 judges and prosecutors over alleged links to Fetullah Terrorist Terrorist Organization (FETO) terror organization.

A total of 191 judges and prosecutors were suspended as part of the investigation, said a judicial source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media.

The same source said no legal action was taken against one more suspect since he was retired.

The suspects were said to be serving at first-degree courts.

To date, more than 3,600 judges and prosecutors have been dismissed since July 15 coup attempt that left 248 martyred and nearly 2,200 wounded.
