Turkey issues detention orders for 34 former state TV personnel

Recep Tayyip Erdogan is prepared to turn his back on the EU and “initiate plan B”

Speaking to the worldwide media in Ankara yesterday as part of the Turkish government's one year commemoration of successfully stemming the coup attempt, Fatma said some of the reports appeared to have an agenda against Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan by portraying it as a mere clash between the president and his opponents. Gulen denies the allegation.

"We are loyal to our word", he told the BBC.

None of that mattered during the three-and-a-half months she was in jail. "Under the state of emergency, Turkish authorities have arrested, detained, and fired scores of alleged coup plotters and thousands of others without due process".

Turkey's Justice Ministry has announced that 50,510 people have been arrested and 169,013 have been the subject of legal proceedings on coup charges since a failed coup in Turkey on July 15, 2016.

Rep. Randy Hultgren (R-IL) and the other senior members of the U.S. Helsinki Commission urged President Donald Trump to demand fair treatment of U.S. prisoners ahead of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's recent visit to Washington. A dozen members of parliament have been charged with supporting terrorist activity because of public comments against the government.

Anti-terror police seized Avci at his Istanbul home and also seized another man identified as a fugitive sought for being a user of ByLock, an encrypted messaging app Ankara says was used by Gulen's followers, the agency added.

The Turkish President said country was 'able to stand on its own two feet'.

Turkey outdoes the West in terms of human rights, Erdogan stressed.

There is a need for the European Union (EU) and the United States (US) to be on the same page with Turkey in fighting the terrorism scourge, according to a Turkish minister.

"Because counter terrorism is not local, it is the implementation of an worldwide agreement".
