A series of new developments have taken place in the aftermath of the attempted coup by a faction of the Turkish military.

Wikileaks has released nearly 300,000 emails from the internal servers of Turkey’s ruling AKP party. WikiLeaks, a non-profit organization dedicated to enabling whistleblowers, reported suffering from a “sustained attack” prior to and after the release of the documents, it attributes these attacks to the Turkish government.

The latest victims of the purge by the Turkish government include nearly 1,500 university deans who have been ordered to resign and 21,000 teachers at private institutions have had their licenses revoked. 20,000 people had already been arrested, detained or dismissed by the government, more on that HERE.

The licenses of 24 radio and television stations have also been revoked.

The purge by the Turkish government has been in the name of rooting out members of the political opposition known as the Gulenist Movement, which is headed by the US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen and considered to be a terrorist organization by the Turkish Government.
