DW reports the Turkish police have arrested 189 appeals court judges and prosecutors following a failed military coup in July. The coup was set to oust present Dictator Recep Erdogan.

The government has accused the arrested judges of having links to a US-based Islamist cleric Fethullah Gülen, who the government claims was behind the coup.

 U.S visa waivers are available pursuant to an I-607 application and supporting documents prepared by qualified attorneys in Thailand

The accusation was based on the judges’ alleged use a smartphone messaging app called ByLock. The government claims that the app was used to plan and coordinate the coup. Information gathered from the app detected tens of thousands of Gülen followers after the coup.

Post coup investigations have led to the arrest of over 32,000 people while 100,000 people have been dismissed or suspended from government positions according to DW.
