Turkey ‘to seize assets of 187 Gulenlinked businessmen’

Turkey on Thursday ordered the seizure of the assets of 187 businessmen suspected of links to US-based Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen, accused by Ankara of masterminding last month's attempted coup, local media reported.

Sixty out of 187 suspects including CEOs were detained as police launched a vast operation in Istanbul and other provinces targeting businesses suspected of financing Gulen's activities, the private Dogan news agency reported.
