Noyan had said that her family hadn't been able to do everything they wanted during the failed coup attempt of July 15, 2016.
"Our family has a capability of taking out 50 people. We are very prepared regarding this – both financially and spiritually. Everyone should be very careful. I have three to five neighbors [who are coup plotters]. My list is ready," Noyan had said in a TV show.
The Istanbul Chief Prosecutor's Office's Press Crimes Bureau had initiated an investigation into Noyan following her remarks and Turkey's media watchdog had fined the broadcaster for airing the segment.Turkey’s media watchdog fines pro-gov't TV channel over Islamist commentator's death threats
