Mehmet Şener Eruygur (born 17 June 1941, Erzurum[1]) is a former Turkish general. He was General Commander of the Gendarmerie of Turkey from 2002 to 2004, and was later head of the Atatürk Thought Association. Eruygur was one of those charged in the Ergenekon trials with being involved with the Sarıkız, Ayışığı, Yakamoz and Eldiven 2004 coup plans;[2][3][4] in August 2013 he was sentenced to aggravated life imprisonment.[5]

Eruygur is also accused of founding the Republican Working Group (CÇG), an illegal organization similar to the Batı Çalışma Grubu (BÇG, West Working Group).[6] He graduated from the Turkish Military Academy in 1960.[7]
