Turkey denies plot to kidnap Gulen from US

WEB DESK

Turkey has rejected as “ludicrous” US media reports that it offered millions to the US to deliver cleric Fethullah Gulen. The reports implicate former US national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Turkey has dismissed reports in US media alleging that Turkish officials had proposed paying several million dollars to former US national security adviser Michael Flynn for seizing Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen and handing him over to Ankara.

“All allegations that Turkey would resort to means external to the rule of law for [Gulen’s] extradition are utterly false, ludicrous and groundless,” Turkey’s embassy in Washington said on Twitter on Saturday.

The Turkish government accuses Gulen, who has lived in the US for nearly 20 years, of having masterminded a failed coup attempt against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in July 2016. Some 250 people were killed in the attempted coup, which has been followed by a draconian crackdown on alleged dissidents in which tens of thousands have been jailed.

Ankara has often requested that the US extradite Gulen, but the request has so far always been denied.
