THE FILE FOR FETO RINGLEADER GÜLENS EXTRADITION COMPLETED

Turkish Justice Minister Abdülhamit Gül stated on Sunday that the file for Gülen's extradiction is completed, while he was responding to journalists' questions at the Turkish parliament.

The file regarding the extradition of accused Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO) ringleader Fetullah Gülen from the U.S. to Turkey has been completed, Justice Minister Abdülhamit Gül said on Sunday.

"The file for Gülen's extradiction is completed," Gül said, responding to journalists' questions at the Turkish parliament for the opening of the third legislative session.

"All processes have been completed according to international contracts and extradition contracts, there are no shortcomings in technical terms or documents for the extradition," he added.

Gül stated that the process was suffering from no deficiencies.

Ankara has sought Gülen's extradition in relation to the failed July 15, 2016 putsch that left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured as rogue military units led by alleged FETO officers attempted to seize power.

Turkey accuses Gülen of masterminding the bloody coup attempt.

He has lived in the U.S. since 1999.
