Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Turkey will temporarily suspend the European Convention on Human Rights after announcing a state of emergency following the attempted coup.

…Earlier, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the three-month state of emergency in Turkey would enable authorities to act quicker and more efficiently against the coup plotters.

Meanwhile, around 60,000 soldiers, police, judges, civil servants and teachers have been suspended, detained or put under investigation since the coup was defeated.

Seems legit.
