Turkish-Mexican National Arrested in Cambodia Amid Alleged Gulen Links

Erdogan blames Gulen for the coup attempt and has demanded the extradition of various people tied to Gulen’s movement - including staff at schools it funded worldwide.

Cambodian police have arrested the Turkish-Mexican former director of a school run by the movement of U.S.-based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen, who Ankara blames for a failed 2016 coup, his wife said on Friday.

Osman Karaca, former director of Zaman International School, was arrested by eight policemen while he was at a bank on Oct. 14 in the capital Phnom Penh, said his wife Grace Karaca, who fears he will be deported to Turkey.
