Update - Germany İssues Warrant For Turkey's Most Wanted Man

Turkey expects Germany to extradite Adil Oksuz once they find him, says Turkish foreign minister.

Germany has issued a search warrant for Turkey's most wanted coup suspect Adil Oksuz, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Wednesday.

Speaking to reporters in southern Antalya province, Cavusoglu said: "We have gotten in touch with Germany. Germany has issued a search warrant for Adil Oksuz."

Oksuz, a theology lecturer accused of masterminding Turkey's July 15, 2016 defeated coup, has been on the run for almost two years.

"What Germany will do after finding [Adil Oksuz] is to surrender him to us under the framework of the agreements and the law."

Stating that Turkish intelligence has been monitoring the developments closely about Oksuz, Cavusoglu said: "He has not been found yet."

Cavusoglu's remarks came after reports by Anadolu Agency on Wednesday that Oksuz stayed at a small apartment in Berlin early this year under the protection of Fetullah Terrorist Organisation (FETO).

Anadolu Agency correspondents have found a flat in central Berlin, which was allegedly used by Oksuz and other FETO figures when they fled Turkey following the defeated coup.

Ali A., a Berlin-based Turkish businessman with suspected ties to FETO, provided financial support for the group to rent the flat in Berlin's Neukoelln district, witnesses told Anadolu Agency.

In response to a question on whether Oksuz is in Berlin or not, Cavusoglu said: "Information may be sometimes old but we have been chasing all the FETO members; no matter they are in Germany, the U.S. or Africa. […] They will be held accountable [for what they have done]."

"We are evaluating every kind of tip-off and information by taking them seriously. We will accelerate our contacts with Germany in the direction of this information," the foreign minister added.

Turkish officials have repeatedly appealed to the German government to arrest and extradite Oksuz, after receiving dozens of tips, indicating that the key coup suspect was hiding in Germany.

Last November, all police departments were asked to inform the Federal Criminal Police Office on any findings that could help them identify the whereabouts of the chief coup suspect.

In Germany, which is home to more than three million Turkish immigrants, FETO has a large network with dozens of private schools, businesses and media organizations. -
