Turkey again urges US to extradite Gulen
Turkey again requests US to arrest Fetullah Gulen
Turkey has sent the U.S. a second request for the extradition of Fetullah Gulen, the Pennsylvania-based Muslim cleric accused of masterminding the thwarted July 15 coup attempt, Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said on Tuesday.
The first demand to the US for Gulen’s extradition had been made on July 19.
"They requested certain information following our first letter; we provided answers to the question 'why is it urgent," - Anadolu quoted Bozdag as telling reporters in parliament, adding that Turkey had intelligence indicating Gulen might leave for a third country.
The minister said that Gulen could not go abroad without a US permit.
Gulen is also accused of running a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary, forming what is commonly known as the parallel state.
