Turkey - Dismissals and suspensions continue - September 30, 2016

The government is accelerating the process of converting suspensions of public workers allegedly affiliated to the Fethullah Gulen movement into permanent dismissals as further clues also emerged about the criteria used to identify Gulenists. A decree published in the Official Gazette on 1 September announced the dismissal of more than 10,000 public sector workers, ranging from academics to healthcare personnel. In public universities, 2,346 academics were dismissed while the number of lay-offs by the health ministry stood at 1,825 including administrative and healthcare staff.
