Four Turkish Cypriot young cadets at the Istanbul Military Lyceum in Cengenkoy were included in the 80 cadets who were taken into custody after the failure of the coup attempt in Turkey. The cadets had reportedly participated in the coup attempt, in all innocence, believing that they were on manoeuvres.

The TRNC presidency and the security forces command have undertaken an initiative for the release of the four young Turkish Cypriots. The TRNC’s representation office in Istanbul contacted the cadets and found out that they are well and innocent.

It is said that the four Turkish Cypriots will be released after formal procedures are over.
