  • In Turkey fired more than 18 thousand public servants

Turkish government ordered the dismissal of 18,632 civil servants, including armed forces and academics, and shut down four media outlets through state of emergency powers late on Saturday night.

The Official Gazette said 18,632 people had been fired, including 8,998 police officers, in the emergency decree over suspected links to terror organizations and groups that "act against national security".

Critics say Erdogan is using the extra powers permitted under emergency rule, renewed seven times, to target opponents, with human rights defenders including Amnesty International lambasting the purges as arbitrary.

But the government says they are necessary to remove a number of terrorist threats inside state institutions.

The move comes before Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Monday is sworn in as president following re-election in June and prior to lifting a state of emergency in place since summer 2016.

Erdogan will take his oath in the Turkish parliament, followed by a lavish ceremony at his nearby palace in Ankara.

In the aftermath of the failed 2016 coup, more than 55,000 people have been detained pending trial.

The Turkish government has blamed USA -based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen for the failed coup attempt during which 250 people were killed.

Gulen himself, who has been residing in the United States since 1999, has refuted all the allegations on numerous occasions.

More than 77,000 people including military personnel have been arrested over alleged Gulen links under the post-coup state of emergency imposed almost two years ago.

Also, 3,077 personnel from the land forces command, 1,126 from the naval forces command, and 1,949 from the air force command were ousted from the Turkish army.

Moreover, 1,052 people, including judicial candidates and civil servants were dismissed from the Ministry of Justice.

The decree also said 148 employees who were dismissed in the past had been reinstated. The majority of those fired under the emergency are accused of links to Gulen.
