Statement of the Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Hami Aksoy, in Response to a Question Regarding the Negative Outcome of the FETO Members’ Extradition Process from the UK

We were disappointed by the decision of the Supreme Court today (April 9 th), rejecting our request for a renewed appeal against the decision of the London Westminster Court of Appeals regarding the refusal of extradition of Hamdi Akin Ipek, Ali Celik, Talip Buyuk and Mustafa Yesil, members of FETO terrorist organization, from the United Kingdom to our country.

Our expectation and efforts towards the extradition of FETO members who are behind the July 15 treacherous coup attempt, claiming the life of 251 innocent citizens and wounding thousands, will continue. It should not be forgotten that this terrorist organization is a threat not only for Turkey, but for each country where it operates, and that international cooperation is of great importance in the fight against terrorism.
