Turkey dismisses thousands in year after coup attempt

Turkey has dismissed over 7,000 more police, ministry staff and academics, ahead of the first anniversary of an attempted coup.

It comes as part of a major purge of state institutions, including the judiciary, police and education, in response to last year's unrest.

On Saturday, Turkey marks one year since rogue soldiers bombed buildings and opened fire on civilians.

More than 250 people were killed in the violence.

The Turkish authorities accuse a movement loyal to the Muslim cleric, Fethullah Gulen, of organising the July 2016 plot to bring down President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Mr Gulen, who remains in the United States, denies any involvement. Washington has so far resisted calls from the Turkish authorities to extradite the cleric.

The latest dismissals came in a decree from 5 June but only published by the official government Gazette on Friday.

It says the employees are people "who it's been determined have been acting against the security of the state or are members of a terrorist organisation".

Among those listed were 2,303 police officers and 302 university academics. Another 342 retired officers and soldiers were stripped of their ranks and grades, Reuters reports.

Turkey has already dismissed more than 150,000 officials since the coup attempt, and arrested another 50,000 from the military, police and other sectors.

The government says the measures are necessary given the security threats it faces but critics say Mr Erdogan is using the purges to stifle political dissent.

Istanbul is awash with giant anniversary billboards and posters showing people confronting pro-coup soldiers.

Huge rallies are due to take place, with President Erdogan, who avoided capture last year, addressing parliament at the exact time that it was bombed.

He and his supporters see the defeat of the coup as Turkey's rebirth, but for others it's less triumphant, says the BBC's Mark Lowen.

"Meanwhile, Washington’s subway authority has banned July 15 informatory posters prepared by the Independent Industrialists’ and Businessmen’s Association (MÜSİAD) after finding them “too political,” state-run Anadolu Agency reported. "

Hope you have a lovely weekend :D

The situation in Turkey is NOT as simple as we are led to believe :-s

Erdogan was in trouble - he wanted more power as President of Turkey but did not have enough support

It was possible that the soldiers taking part in the supposed coup, actually thought they were taking part in a military exercise :-?

The response to the supposed coup, where millions of people streamed onto the streets, had to have been pre-planned

The end result is the increased popularity of Hitler 2nd (Erdogan) who now has free run to dismiss thousands of the people who had any political, legal or military power

And the freedom to destroy the Kurdish homeland X(
