An Ergenekon prisoner being driven in a police armoured vehicle holds a protestor's hand on August 5, 2013, as police and gendarmerie block access to a courthouse in Silivri, near Istanbul, where prosecutors are scheduled to deliver their final arguments in the case against 275 people accused of plotting to overturn the Islamic-leaning government. Among the defendants in the high-profile case -- seen as a key test in Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan's showdown with secularist and military opponents -- are ex-military chief Ilker Basbug and other army officers as well as lawyers, academics and journalists.
