World Bulletin / News DeskWorld Bulletin / News Des

Georgian Ministry of Education has canceled Saturday the license of the school that is known to be linked to the Fetullah Terror Organization (FETO) in Batumi.

Sahin Primary and High Schools' license was cancelled due to some serious deficiencies such as student enrollment system, officials from the country's Education Ministry told Anadolu Agency, speaking on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking with the media.

The officials said the formal decision on the cancellation of the school's license would be issued within 10 working days.

According to Georgian law, when a school's license is canceled, educational procedures are suspended from the day the decision is formally issued.

By the decision of the Ministry, the students will be transferred to various educational institutions.

It is known that there were seven FETO linked schools in Georgia, as the Georgian Education Quality Improvement Center did not renew the licence of one of those schools located in capital Tbilisi at the beginning of the 2016-2017 academic year.

According to Turkey’s government, FETO leader Fetullah Gulen -- a resident of the U.S. state of Pennsylvania -- masterminded the July 15 defeated coup, which left at least 248 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.

Ankara has also said FETO is behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.

The terrorist group is also known for its network of hundreds of schools around the world.

So far, over 80 FETO organizations operating abroad, including schools and training centers, have been shut down or transferred to the Turkish government.
