On 5 October 2016, a professor at Duke University claimed in a tweet that Turkey released “rapists” and “robbers” to imprison well-educated people.

In response to the tweet: “I would suggest Turkey’s prison population would be among the least educated,” professor Timur Kuran tweeted: “No. Rapists, robbers, etc. freed to make room for witch hunt victims. Poorly educated convicts out, teachers, academics, media people in.”
