ankara - The Turkish secret service has again brought alleged supporters of Fethullah Gülen from abroad to Turkey. It concerns two men detained in Ukraine and Azerbaijan, say sources within the Turkish security services against state press agency Anadolu.
The Turkish authorities see the men as important members of Gülen's organization, the clergyman who is held responsible by Turkey for the bloody coup attempt in 2016. The duo flew to Turkey with a private plane. The men are suspected of membership in an armed terror organization.
Turkey also recalled six alleged Gülenists from Kosovo earlier this year. The prime minister of that country then fired his Minister of the Interior and the secret service chief. Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said he was not aware of the extradition.
Turkish president Erdogan said in April that already eighty Gülenists have been brought back. Gülen himself lives in exile in the United States. The Americans refuse to deliver him.
