„Should we feed them in prison for years instead of hanging them?“ he [Evren] asked in a speech in 1984, referring to those executed after the coup.

 

The coup set the stage for a military regime under which thousands were tortured, hundreds sentenced to death and many more vanished and ushered in an era of military dominance in Turkish politics.
