State-run Anadolu Agency (AA) has announced the new development in the debate that the July 15 trial defendants wear uniform attire.
According to Tanju Özkaya and İsmet Karakaş from the AA, works have started following the proposal that “Fethullahist Terror Organization/Parallel State Structure (FETÖ/PDY) members wear uniform attire”.
The color of the FETÖ members will be dry almond, the AA reported.
