According to information from a Turkish judicial official, the European Court of Human Rights has rejected around 25,000 applications from Turkish nationals, all related to last year’s coup attempt.

The court declined to hear the cases on the grounds that the applicants had failed to exhaust judicial procedures in Turkey.

Thousands of people across Turkey have been arrested or dismissed from their jobs over links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), which staged last year’s bloody coup attempt, which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

It was also added that the curt referred to this procedure in its rejection of cases.
