Turkey's Supreme Board of Judges and Prosecutors (HSYK) have dismissed four prosecutors including Zekeriya Oz, Celal Kara, Muammer Akkaş, Mehmet Yüzgeç as well as judge Süleyman Karacol from their professions.

The decision of the chamber has taken into account the last paragraph of Article 69 which states that their actions that the prosecutors had been suspended as result of their actions which may "damage the influence and reputation" of the judiciary.

The HSYK 3rd Chamber stated that "the investigation of 17-25 December by permission of the prosecutor was approved by Chamber President Bekir Bozdag. The Chamber has requested the suspension of their duties until the investigations have been finalised.

The HSYK 2nd Chamber has requested the suspension of Oz, Kara, Akkas and Yuzgec pending investigations.

Prosecutors Kara, Akkas and Yuzgec are accused for leading an attempted coup on the government whilst prosecutor Zekeriya Oz is accused as being the coordinator. Oz also threatened police officers during the police operation that is perceived as a major part of the Gülen Movement's alleged attempt to overthrow the elected government
