Stating that Fetullah Gülen’s days in the United States may be numbered as a delegation from the U.S. Department of Justice will visit Turkey soon to discuss the extradition process of the leader of the terrorist group blamed for the 2016 coup attempt.
Turkey will host a U.S. delegation in the coming days as it fights to speed up the extradition process for Fetullah Gülen, the leader of the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) who resides in Pennsylvania. The delegation of Department of Justice officials and court officials will hold talks with officials from the Justice Ministry as well as with prosecutors investigating the cases related to the terrorist group and judges. Ankara aims to update U.S. officials on information regarding the terrorist group accused of carrying out the July 15, 2016 coup attempt.
Gulen run over 150 US public charter schools.
Gülen was already implicated in a string of wrongdoings in cases related to his group; but after the coup attempt that killed 250 people, Ankara accelerated its efforts for his extradition from the United States, a close ally of the country. Gülen left for the United States in 1999 citing health reasons and lives in a luxurious retreat in Saylorsburg, Pennsylvania run by the FETÖ-linked Golden Generation foundation.
