Turkey Hands US ‘Evidence’ in Bid To Extradite Gulen
Local Editor

The Turkish government presented the United States with over 84 boxes of "hard evidence" that Fethullah Gulen, the exiled Turkish preacher living in Pennsylvania, was behind last year's failed coup, the country's ambassador to Lebanon said Friday.

Turkey Hands US ‘Evidence' in Bid To Extradite Gulen

Speaking at an event in Beirut ahead of the first anniversary of the failed putsch, Cagatay Erciyes, the Turkish Ambassador to Lebanon, said that "the United States has asked for evidence [of Gulen's involvement], and we sent to them 84 boxes of evidence, full of hard evidence."

As he praised national unity in Turkey since the events as a victory for democracy he said the government's push to have Gulen extradited for masterminding the coup was "still a pending issue."

"Tomorrow we will celebrate this anniversary as Democracy and National Unity Day in Turkey," Erciyes said during the media conference in Downtown Friday.

On July 15, 2016, members of the Turkish military launched a coordinated operation in several cities in Turkey in a bid to topple the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has ruled the country as prime minister and then president since 2003.

Tanks rolled through the streets of Ankara and Istanbul. Soldiers blocked the Bosphorus Bridge and stormed media outlets.

"On that night we were confronted with murderers heading their tanks onto innocent civilians; killing unsuspecting military personnel who refused to join them; flying fighter jets to bomb their own national Parliament, the presidential compound, the headquarters of National Intelligence and Special Forces, and strategically vital infrastructure," Erciyes said. "They attempted to assassinate our president."
