Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 27
By Rufiz Hafizoglu – Trend:
A former leader of the PYD Salih Muslim’s release from the Czech court will negatively affect the Turkey-Czech relations, Turkey’s Vice Premier Bekir Bozdag said on Feb. 27 according to Turkish media.
Bozdag said that Turkey condemns the decision of the Czech court, however it has been expected.
The decision of the Czech court also contradicts the international law, he added.
On Feb. 27, the Czech court released terrorist Salih Muslim, who had been detained two days ago.
The Czech side said that they are ready to hold talks with Turkey on extradition of ex-leader of PYD earlier.
The Turkish Interior Ministry included Muslim into the list of especially dangerous criminals. He is accused in infringement attempt against the integrity and unity of Turkey and in a number of other serious offenses. The Ministry announced a $1 million bounty for cooperation in his capture.
