30 ACTIVE, 59 GENERALS
In the third hearing for the Balyoz case, arrest warrants were issued for 59 generals and admirals, 30 of which are currently on active duty. While 27 of the active-duty generals were present in court, they were directly transferred to the Hasdal Military Penitentiary; the remaining three active generals have been issued warrants for their arrest.
General Fırtına and Örnek were amongst the 25 retired generals present in court that were subsequently arrested.
