Police detained 31 suspects on Thursday in an operation investigating past cheating on licensing exams for prospective judges and prosecutors, the latest accusation raised against the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), whose members already face trial for allegations of cheating on yet another civil servant exam.
In 34 cities across Turkey, police raided several locations in the operation, which resulting when the 2012 exam, used for the appointment of judges and prosecutors, led to dubious results. The charges of cheating stem from a report submitted by a group of professors who detected irregularities after examining the results of the exam.
Media outlets report 37 other suspects remain at large
In May, the police detained dozens of people for cheating on the Public Personnel Selection Exam (KPSS), which is taken by tens of thousands of students who hope to join the ranks of Turkey's vast bureaucracy. These are the latest in a wave of detentions regarding allegations of KPSS cheating that were revealed last year. Gülenists are accused of supplying questions and answers to members of the cult prior to the exam, provided to them by infiltrators served on the Examination Board.
Investigations revealed that a large number of people who scored high on the 2010 KPSS exam were either partners or relatives of Gülenists, or were employed by companies and schools linked to the Gülen Movement. Among those under investigation for cheating on the KPSS exam are the wives of the military officers behind the putsch attempt on July 15.
The terror cult, headed by the U.S.-based retired and fugitive imam Fethullah Gülen, is at the heart of a string of judicial investigations. Gülen and his followers are wanted on charges of running a terror group and attempting to overthrow the Turkish government. Several investigations have revealed that the cult had plans to carry out terror plots through members who had infiltrated the judiciary and police, as well as a massive network of followers from every profession in Turkey and around the world. Dozens of police officers, prosecutors, judges and bureaucrats are facing trial on a string of allegations, ranging from widespread illegal wiretapping and plotting to imprison critics of the terror cult using fabricated or altered evidence.
