Erdoğan admits to being behind arrests of thousands in post-coup purge

The failed coup claimed the lives of more than 240 people while it left more than a thousand others injured. Immediately after the putsch, the AKP government along with Erdoğan pinned the blame on the Gülen movement despite the lack of any evidence to that effect and initiated a widespread purge aimed at cleansing sympathizers of the movement from within state institutions, dehumanizing its popular figures and putting them in custody.

Speaking at a meeting in İstanbul on Wednesday with the families of people killed or injured during the coup attempt, Erdoğan directed accusations at main opposition Republican People’s Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu due to his remarks about the coup attempt’s being a controlled one.
