The indictment includes U.S.-based preacher Fetullah Gulen himself.
Speaking on condition of anonymity due to fears for their safety, the source said that the Ankara 4th High Criminal Court approved the joint indictment, which was prepared by Ankara Chief Public Prosecutor's Office.
The first hearing is expected to be held between Nov. 22 and 25.
According to the joint indictment, those who are de facto leading the organization, who know the crimes of the organization and continue to commit crimes intentionally after having learnt the truths about the organization, are the subjects of the investigation.
Turkey's government has repeatedly said the deadly coup attempt on July 15, which martyred at least 246 people and injured more than 2,100 others, was organized by followers of Gulen.
Gulen is also accused of a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through infiltrating Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police and judiciary, forming a ‘parallel state’.
