QUOTE: Eighty-six people, including writers, members of civil organizations and former military officers, were formally charged Monday with membership in an illegal ultranationalist organization and of plotting a coup to overthrow the Turkish government. Speaking at a televised news conference, the Istanbul chief prosecutor, Aykut Cengiz Engin, refused to give details of the case against the ultranationalist and hard-line secular organization, known as Ergenekon, citing prohibitions on public briefings before a case is formally accepted by the criminal court.
