‘United States prepare to extradite Gülen to Turkey for’

The American president Donald Trump has his Turkish ambtsgenoot Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that Washington is working on the extradition of moslimgeestelijke Fethullah Gulen. That said the Turkish minister of Foreign Affairs Mevlüt Çavusoglu Sunday.

The commitment would be made during the G20 meeting in Argentina two weeks ago. The White House declined to comment on the statement of Çavusoglu.

Gulen is Turkey accused of being behind the failed Turkish coup d’état in 2016. He lives for two decades in exile in the U.s. state of Pennsylvania and is therefore outside the reach of the Turkish authorities, who had previously in vain, for his extradition have asked.

Last month it was announced that the Us government had to figure out how Gulen can be turned off. The research hopes the White House Turkey to calm down in the question around the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, said two senior officials and two others of the issue on the height at NBC News.

Turkey accuses the Gülenbeweging also of tax evasion, and has the American FBI, who is investigating, asked for the proofs to this.

Gülenbeweging calls messages ‘shocking’

The Dutch department of the Hizmetbeweging of Gulen called it rather “shocking” to find out if Turkey the murder of Khashoggi used as a “change” to the spiritual extradition.

The movement denies strongly that Gulen was involved in the couppoging. “Even during the couppoging he has to be convicted, and any possible involvement rejected. In fact, he has directly called for an international investigation. This call he has on several occasions repeated, but here it is, as yet, no response will be given.”

According to Hizmet is a big chance that extradition of Gulen to Turkey to his death will lead. “We expect that the government of the United States will comply with the national and international legal obligations and a fair trial is guaranteed.”
