Turkey reinstates over 6,000 teachers suspended after botched coup
“6,007 personnel suspended over links to terrorist organisations have returned to their jobs,” the ministry said on Twitter.
Tens of thousands of teachers were suspended or sacked over links to Kurdish militants and coup plotters since July 15 when a rogue faction tried to oust President Recep Tayyip Erdogan from power.
The botched coup led to scores of arrests and sacking that raised eye brows of the international community which pushed Turkish president Reccep Tayyip Erdogan to calm down and halt crack down against alleged facilitators of coup bid.
Turkey also urged Pakistan to shut down a network of pak-Turk schools for its links to Fatehullah Gulen. The interior ministry ordered the Turkish staff to leave the country by November 20 however, a decision by Peshawar High Court stayed the interior ministry ordered.
The status of Pak-Turk schools Turkish staff still hangs in limbo.
