From Cambodia to Ankara, new arrests in fight against FETÖ

Turkey continued its struggle against FETÖ with new arrests announced on Friday as reports said Cambodian authorities detained a senior figure of the terrorist group.

Turkey’s pursuit of justice concerning members of the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) continues with new arrests as the country seeks cooperation from foreign allies in the fight against the group that killed 251 people during the July 15, 2016 coup attempt.

Cambodian police have arrested the Turkish-Mexican former director of a school run by FETÖ, Reuters reported on Friday. Osman Karaca, former director of the Zaman International School linked to FETÖ, was arrested on Oct. 14 in the capital Phnom Penh, the news agency reported.

The Mexican Embassy in Vietnam —it does not have one in Cambodia — confirmed the arrest in a letter and asked Cambodia’s Interior Ministry to provide information and let him communicate with a consul. Karaca, who was born in Turkey and holds a Mexican passport, was the director of Zaman school until it was sold last year and has since been working as an educational consultant for the school, his wife told Reuters.
