All members of the media suspected of working with the so-called “Parallel state” structure of the Hizmet movement, controlled by the Islamic preacher-immigrant and former ally of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan Fethullah Gulen.

Recall that Gulen Erdogan has accused of organizing coup attempts, despite the fact that while it submitted no evidence, and the preacher living in the United States, stated its commitment to non-violent protest.

However, included in the lists for the arrest of journalists could face long prison sentences: from tens of years to several life.

We will remind that today the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has already announced an immediate cessation of the process of European integration of Turkey in the case if the country will be returned to death penalty, as it plans to make Erdogan. However, he noted, the events in Turkey now say that soon she will not be able to join United Europe.

Read why Gulen Erdogan called crazy.

At the moment the authorities of the Republic carry out mass purges of personnel, from the army to universities that many experts have called repression. Arrests and dismissals suffered about 50 thousand people, most of them accused of being Pro-Gulen. In this regard, several dozen media their licenses revoked, the same fate befell many educational institutions of the country.
