Turkish Ministry of Justice requested from the US a provisional arrest for Gülen, the leader of the terrorist organization FETÖ, on suspicion of "organizing an attempted military coup."
Thus, the Ministry sent to the United States the first request for provisional arrest due to the attempted coup.
An attempted coup was staged in Turkey on the night July 15 -16. Turkey claimed the rebellion was inspired and organized by Gülen - the head of the terrorist organization FETÖ, who currently lives in Pennsylvania (USA).
Turkey asked the United States to extradiate Fetullah Gulen and presented a dossier of evidence proving FETÖ’s involvement in attempted coup.
