Former Turkish general and ex-head of Turkey's National Intelligence Organization (MIT), Teoman Koman, has died at the age of 77.
Teoman Koman released from prison due to serious health problems on May 29, 2012.
He was being investigated for being involved in the February 28, 1997 military coup which ousted elected prime minister Necmettin Erbakan and being connected with the shadowy deep-state Ergenekon.
Not only were fatal blows dealt to fundamental rights and freedoms after the coup, but democracy and the rule of law were also effectively suspended. The coup introduced a series of harsh restrictions on religious life, with an unofficial but widely practiced ban on the use of the Islamic headscarf at public institutions and universities.
