Turkish prosecutors issued arrest warrants on Tuesday against 228 people suspected of being involved in the 2016 military coup attempt, state broadcaster Anadolu reports.

The suspects are from the army and the Turkish Ministry of Justice. Of the military suspects, 101 are active officers.

At the Ministry of Justice, 71 people are suspected of supporting the spiritual Fethullah Gülen. 33 of the 71 are still active at the ministry.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suspects Gülen of being behind the coup, but Gülen denies any involvement.

With his large and active following, Gülen was once an important political ally of Erdogan, but the two got into a fight in 2013. Erdogan already said at the time that Gülen was organizing "a state in a state" with his supporters.

Since the coup, 80,000 people have been arrested and 150,000 people, including soldiers, have lost their jobs.
