Turkey's Emergency State Body Concludes 93% Of Appeals

Over 15,000 applications accepted, more than 103,000 rejected, says Inquiry Commission.

Turkey's commission on the state of emergency concluded 93% of applications concerning measures taken in the aftermath of the defeated coup attempt in July 2016, according to its latest announcement on Thursday.
The Inquiry Commission on State of Emergency Measures received over 131,900 applications on measures adopted under state of emergency decree laws, such as the dismissal of public officials, scholarship cancellations, annulment of the ranks of retired personnel, and the closure of some institutions.
Of these, it has concluded over 126,600 applications since beginning its ruling procedure on Dec. 22, 2017, the report said.
Since the defeated coup attempt, Turkish institutions, including the military, have been working to identify and expel elements of FETO, the group behind the plot.
The two-year state of emergency was lifted on July 20, 2018.
A total of 251 people were killed and nearly 2,200 injured in the July 15, 2016 coup attempt orchestrated by FETO and its US-based leader Fetullah Gulen.
Ankara accuses FETO of orchestrating a long-running campaign to destabilize the Turkish state by infiltrating Turkish institutions, including the military, police, and judiciary.
The commission says it investigated applications for linkages or contact with terrorist organizations or other entities listed by the country's National Security Council as engaging in activities harming national security.
Over 15,000 applications accepted
In its announcement, the commission said the number of accepted applications stood at 15,050, while 103,365 were rejected and 8,343 more are pending.
It added that of the total applications it had accepted, 61 were for the reopening of organizations that were closed down after the defeated coup attempt, including associations, foundations, and television channels.
"Accordingly, 93% of the applications have been decided since the date of the beginning of the Commission's decision-making process," read its report.
To deal with these applications, a data processing infrastructure was set up to electronically receive, archive, and examine them, the commission said, adding that the system has recorded information from over 20 institutions and organizations.
For this, the commission employed some 240 professionals, including 75 rapporteurs – judges, experts and inspectors – in the application assessment process.
More than 495,000 files have been classified, registered, and archived, including personnel files transferred from their institutions, court files, and past applications. -
