Police Confirms Arrest, Extradition to Turkey of Ex-School Director

Former Zaman International School director Osman Karaca has been arrested and sent to Turkey out of “cooperation” with Ankara, National Police spokesman Chhay Kim Khoeun said on Sunday.

Karaca, a Turkish-Mexican dual national, was arrested while at a bank in Tuol Kork last week, according to his wife, Grace Karaca, who released a video on Friday saying she was now fearing for her husband’s life.

Zaman, which was sold and renamed Paragon Education last year, had long been under pressure from Turkish authorities due to its link to Fethullah Gulen, a preacher living in exile in the U.S. whom the Turkish government accuses of staging a coup attempt in 2016.
