Turkey will give the U.S. new evidence on its arrest request for Fetullah Gulen, the Turkish fugitive accused of leading the failed July 15 coup that martyred 241 people, according to judicial sources.
The sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to the media, said Monday that Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag will share new evidence obtained since Sept. 10 with his U.S. counterpart, Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Bozdag will leave for the U.S. on Tuesday to meet with Lynch to discuss Turkey's official request for the provisional arrest of terrorist leader Gulen, according to Justice Ministry sources.
Turkey has officially submitted to the U.S. evidence that Gulen’s network established a quasi-state within the Turkish state in an attempt to topple the government and ultimately tried to take over the state via a bloody coup.
Turkish authorities also issued an official request for Gulen’s extradition under a 1979 treaty between Turkey and the U.S.
