No suspects in Turkish anti-terror probes are hiding in the U.S. diplomatic missions in Turkey, the outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Turkey, John Bass, said Wednesday in his farewell meeting with the press in Turkey.
Axar.az reports citing Daily Sabah that his comments came after several Turkish media outlets claimed that a second U.S. consular staff sought with an arrest warrant in a probe targeting the Gülenist Terror Group (FETO) is hiding at the U.S. consulate in Istanbul.
Bass dismissed the allegations and stated that they are not allowing any of their staff hiding from judicial processes.
Regarding the arrested consular staff Metin Topuz, who is being accused of cooperating with the FETO, Bass said that the U.S. government still have not received an answer as to why Topuz has been arrested, but communication will resume between the two authorities.
