Speaking to TRT, Turkish minister of justice Abdulhamit Gül said that a Turkish court has also issued an arrest warrant for Oksuz.
“We continue following this case. However, Interpol isn’t treating our requests positively. Nevertheless, we will continue submitting requests over this person and other members of the terror group [Gulenists], he said.

On September 3, a court approved the prosecutor’s motion to remand into custody Oksuz for two months until further proceedings.
