Turkey's Erdogan Moots Retrial Of Military Coup Plots

By DMO Affiliate
Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan has mooted the retrial of hundreds of army officers convicted of planning his overthrow, in an apparent attempt to discredit rivals he accuses of contriving a corruption crisis to drive him from office. Erdogan's Islamist-rooted AK Party is widely held to have relied heavily on U.S.-based Islamic cleric Fethullah Gulen's influence in the police and judiciary in breaking the power of an army that carried out three coups between 1960 and 1980 and forced an Islamist-led government from power in 1997.
