A total of 57 current and former employees of the Borsa Istanbul Stock Exchange (BIST) have been detained over links to the Gulenist Terror Group, which is blamed for the July 15 coup attempt.
Axar.az reports citing Daily Sabah.
Prosecutors ordered the detention of 102 people as part of the ongoing probe into FETO, and Istanbul-based operations were launched Friday in six different provinces.
Some 110 addresses in the cities of Istanbul, Giresun, Balıkesir, Kayseri, Bursa and Ankara were searched by police units.
Tens of thousands of people tied to FETÖ have been dismissed or suspended from duty in the private and public sector since the coup while hundreds are being arrested for their involvement in the coup and participating in the crimes of FETÖ.
Led by U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen, a former preacher, the terrorist group managed to infiltrate the law enforcement, judiciary, bureaucracy and military over the past four decades before it openly threatened the government with two coup attempts in 2013.
