Kemal Kilicdaroglu, leader of the Republican People’s Party, said that the prosecution of hundreds of alleged coup plotters has been turned into a "blood feud" in which judges are acting at the behest of the government against its political opponents rather than prosecuting real crimes.

"Everyone has the right to freedom and democracy in this country," Kilicdaroglu said. "We have no confidence at all in this judiciary system, no justice can come out of that trial."
