Euro­pean Court Re­jects 25,000 Turk­ish Coup Bid Cases


ANKARA (Dis­patches) - The Euro­pean Court of Hu­man Rights has re­jected around 25,000 ap­pli­ca­tions from Turk­ish na­tion­als re­lated to last year’s at­tempted coup, ac­cord­ing to a Turk­ish ju­di­cial of­fi­cial. The court de­clined to hear the cases on the grounds that the ap­pli­cants had failed to ex­haust ju­di­cial pro­ce­dures in Tur­key, a Jus­tice Min­istry of­fi­cial said on con­di­tion of anonymity due to re­stric­tions on talk­ing to the me­dia. Thou­sands of peo­ple have been ar­rested or dis­missed from their jobs over sus­pected links to the Fe­tul­lah Ter­ror­ist Or­ga­ni­za­tion (FETO).
