Turkey on Tuesday dismissed close to 15,000 more civil servants, military officials, police and others and shut down 375 institutions and news outlets in investigations over a failed coup in July, authorities said in two official decrees, Reuters.
More than 110,000 people have been sacked or suspended in the military, civil service, judiciary and elsewhere, while 36,000 people have been jailed pending trial as part of the investigation into the failed putsch.
About 1,988 personnel from the Turkish Armed Forces, 7,586 from the police force, 403 from the gendarmerie, and more than 5,000 from public institutions were dismissed in Tuesday's crackdown alone over suspected links to terrorist organizations.
The decrees also announced the closing of 375 institutions, 18 charities, and nine media outlets. Turkey has closed more than 130 media outlets since July.
