ANKARA, Turkey - (AP) Sadullah Ergin said Wednesday the board on Tuesday also removed another head judge who oversaw the trial of the 2007 killing of ethnic Armenian journalist, Hrant Dink.
Newspapers say both judges were probed for some controversial decisions, including the release of a drug suspect from jail.
The coup trial starts Thursday under a new judge. More than 400 people, including soldiers, are already on trial in a similar but separate case. The government denies allegations that cases are politically motivated.
