Turkish authorities arrested 115 ex-officials for investigating the assets of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Ahval reported referring to Hurriyet.
The ex-officials of the Financial Crimes Investigation Board (MASAK) face charges of links to the Gulen movement, which Turkey accuses of directing a military coup attempt in 2016. They detained pending trial.
Turkish authorities found that some of the suspects used an encrypted messaging app known as Bylock, which is believed to have been used almost exclusively by members of the Gulen movement.
After the failed coup attempt, Turkey confiscated assets worth over EUR 10 billion, allegedly owned by the Gulen movement, through various MASAK investigations.
