Czech court orders release of man wanted by Turkey

27th Feb 2018

We previously reported that Turkish politician Salih Muslim had been arrested in the Czech Republic on an Interpol Red Notice issued by Turkey (see previous blog). A Czech court has now ruled that he should be released. Turkey intends to make a formal request for his extradition, and accuses him of disrupting the state and aggravated murder. He was formerly co-chairman of the Syrian-Kurdish Democratic Union Party, which Turkey accuses of being a terrorist organisation.
