Two detaines, including the head of an anti-government NGO, were released late on Saturday by a Turkish court in Turkey's controversial Ergenekon investigation.

Selim Utku Gumrukcu, the head of the "Biz Kac Kisiyiz?" (How many are we?) organization, and Evrim Baykara, a member from the same organization, were released by an Istanbul court.

The Ergenekon operation, which started in June 2007 with the discovery of grenades in a house in Istanbul’s Umraniye district, is allegedly a crackdown on an illegal organization believed to be planning provoking events that would pave the way for a military coup to overthrow the ruling AKP government.

 

The detainees will be charged with a number of crimes including “forming an armed terrorist organization, being a member of a terrorist organization, and aiding the organization.”

 

The 2455-page "Ergenekon" indictment has been filed at an Istanbul court, indicting 86 people, 47 of who are being held in jail.

 

Another indictment would be submitted for those detained in the latest two waves of the operation, including two retired generals, journalists, a business group leader and an actress.

 

An Istanbul court will hold the first hearing of the case on October 20.

 

The indictment of the operation failed to satisfy as many in Turkey still question whether this operation is really aimed at to crackdown an illegal gang or used as a mean to suppress the opposition.
