Turkey extends state of emergency

Warrants issued for 40 FETO suspects

They had their flags - just as they do today - and something much more important: "They had their faith".

The Turkish president underlined that the thwarting of the coup marked a "turning point in the history of democracy" and that it would be a source of hope and inspiration for all people who live under a dictatorship. "These monsters will surely receive the heaviest punishment they can within the law".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has returned to the capital Ankara for a ceremony marking the moment parliament was bombed a year ago during the failed coup attempt.Thousands of people have gathered outside the parliament in the early hours of Sunday, waving Turkish flags and holding up pictures of the 250 people who died confronting the coup-plotters. Erdogan attended the "National Unity March" and unveiled statutes and memorials in honor of those who helped thwart the coup.

More than 50,000 people have been jailed and another 150,000 suspended or fired from work on suspicion of links to Gulen.

Mr Tezcan said inquiries were obstructed to protect the government which, he claimed, is using the state of emergency imposed after the failed coup to create a lawless environment without checks and balances.

In a sign that Ankara has no plan to stop the crackdown, the government issued a decree on Friday, dismissing another 7,000 police, civil servants and academics from their jobs.

Erdogan said recently that the sweeping powers would only be lifted when unrest ends.

Turkey blames US-based cleric Fethullah Gulen for orchestrating a violent attempt to overthrow of the government and the president but the cleric denies the allegations.

The pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) was represented by its deputy chairman at Saturday's events because the party's two co-leaders are in jail - as are local members of the human rights group Amnesty International.

"In the past year, justice has been destroyed".
