ANKARA (AA) - A court in the capital Ankara on Friday issued arrest warrant for the son of former president of constitutional court for his suspected links to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO).
Ankara’s 2nd Criminal Court of Peace issued the warrant for Fatih Samed Kilic, son of Hasim Kilic, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restriction on speaking to the media.
The arrest warrant came after Ankara’s Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office launched an investigation against Kilic for his alleged FETO membership.
Kilic was found to have used ByLock, an encrypted mobile phone application used by FETO members to communicate during and after the defeated coup attempt.
The warrant came at a time when Kilic was abroad.
FETO and its U.S.-based leader Fetullah Gulen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016, which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured.
Ankara accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.
