Turkish court ordered the arrest of former intelligence branch director
A court in Ankara has ordered the arrest of a former intelligence branch director and a police superintendent in a "parallel state" operation, Anadolu Agency reported.
The Gulen movement is accused of masterminding an illegal organization trying to topple the Turkish government through this "parallel state."
Davutoglu emphasized that the "parallel structure" poses a threat not only to his ruling Justice and Development, or AK Party, but also to the functioning of the state itself.
He further stated that his government is fighting a battle against the parallel state both at home and abroad.
