Turkey sentences UN court judge to seven years in jail: reportA Turkish court on Wednesday sentenced a top UN court judge to more than seven years in jail on charges of links to the group blamed for the failed July coup, local media reported. Akay was charged with “membership in an armed terror group” over alleged links to the organisation of Fethullah Gulen, the US-based preacher blamed by Ankara for the attempted overthrow of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The court found Akay guilty of using Bylock, a special communication service which Ankara claims was especially created for Gulen supporters, the Dogan news agency said.
