Decision in a decree published on Friday

12 January, 11:42

    ISTANBUL - A reported 262 state employees have been fired under Turkey's state of emergency with a decree published on Friday over their suspected ties with the alleged network of exiled imam Fethullah Gulen blamed by Ankara for last year's failed coup.
    The same decree gave 1,823 fired employees their jobs back after they had been laid off over the past few months. The decision came after prosecutors in Ankara last December established that the app ByLock, which magistrates say was used by 'Gulenists' to exchange encrypted information, was downloaded on the cell phones of at least 11,480 people ''without their consent''.
