The arrests and purge in Turkey are made according to these criteria. Dr. Sezgin explained them in 13 points as a couple of them were repetitive. He further underlines 4 points that these are nothing to with coup-plotting or terrorism. With these criteria the government of Turkey can anyone and this is what has been happening in Turkey.
