Turkey suspends 15,000 education employees, over 1,500 deans

PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkey has suspended 15,000 state education employees following the weekend's attempted coup, state-run media has said, according to The Independent.

According to state broadcaster TRT, Turkey's High Education Board has also ordered the resignation of 1,577 deans at all universities, part of a wide-ranging purge of dozens of state institutions following a failed coup.

The resignations are being sought at both state and privately run universities, TRT reported.

The government has vowed that those behind the July 15 failed military intervention would pay a heavy price after more than 200 people were killed.

Thousands of others have been suspended from the police force, the military, Finance Ministry and other public sector positions.
