The head of Turkey's bar association said Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's government is considering legal arrangements that could lead to the re-trial of hundreds of military officers including the country's former military chief, other top commanders and other people who were convicted of plotting to topple the government soon after it came to power in 2002. The legitimacy of their trials were put into question recently, after Erdogan's top political adviser suggested that those officers had been framed by groups within the police and judiciary whom the government is now accusing of orchestrating a massive corruption probe that has targeted the prime minister's allies.
