Turkey’s President Will “Chop off Heads of Traitors”

As reported by RT, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan vowed to “chop off the heads” of traitors during a speech in Istanbul commemorating the victims of last year’s botched coup attempt and celebrating the government’s victory. Addressing tens of thousands of people in Istanbul on Saturday, President Erdogan said, “First of all, we will chop off the heads of those traitors.” He went on to say, “I spoke to the prime minister and… when they appear in court, let’s make them appear in uniform suits like in Guantanamo.”

According to the report, more than 240 people were killed and over 2,000 injured in the failed coup attempt in summer 2016. Following the failed coup, Turkish officials launched a massive crackdown on alleged coup supporters, as well as opposition figures and journalists. Over 50,000 people were arrested and more than 150,000 civil servants, police officers, and soldiers were dismissed.
