Turkish authorities promised a fair trial for all soldiers who are linked to the failed military coup in mid-July.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Ankara's Chief Public Prosecutor Harun Kodalak promised Saturday fair trails for all soldiers linked to the military coup attempt which happened in the country on July 15.

"We will immediately separate soldiers who did not fire on people, who did not drive army vehicles over people, who did not know what was happening… We will treat them fairly," he said as quoted by Anadolu news agency.
