1980 coup leaders trial begins
The trial of the two remaining generals of the 1980 coup and part of the 5 man junta that took over the country until 1982, began in Anakara today

in 1980 turkey was in a dreadful state and at first the general public welcomed the intervention of the military but the oppression and brutality that followed went far too far....

today sees all the political parties united for once in backing the trial although Süleyman Demirel who was the ousted PM at the time has said he doesnt see much good to come from this event
