  1. Top ranks thinned in secularist crackdown

    TURKEY: The military has compulsorily retired a huge group of generals and admirals at the weekend who had been facing charges of plotting to bring down the government.

    A statement on Saturday announced that a total of 55 top officers were being discharged from service through retirement.

    The group included 40 generals or admirals who are currently on trial in a series of anti-terror probes that first began in 2008.

    The trials have netted hundreds of people who are suspected of involvement in alleged secularist plots against Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s Islamic-rooted government.

    The government has defended the probes, which have stripped the military of its political clout.

    However a succession of long imprisonments without verdicts and other lapses in judicial procedure have tainted the country’s legal process.
