Islamic preacher Fethullah Gülen, whom the Turkish authorities accused of organizing a coup attempt, said the United States will not find legal grounds from the materials of Turkey to extradite him to his homeland. Gazeta.ru reports this citing the Al Arabia TV channel.
"I do not think that America will take such a wrong decision to extradite me and will deal with the world public opinion. It is possible only in the case if the US becomes deceived by unfounded allegations. Turkey has already sent the request for my arrest, but the US court rejected it, according to my sources", Gulen said in an interview.
He also added there are no reasonable and legally significant charges in the files sent by Turkey.
