AKIPRESS.COM - Orhan Inandi was brought to Turkey, Turkish media reported with reference to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
President Erdogan said this after the meeting of the Cabinet, TRT Haber reported.
Erdogan said "one of the so-called top executives of FETO" was captured and brought to Turkey. The operation was conducted by the Turkish national inteligence.
"Orhan Inandi, FETO Director General in Central Asia, was delivered to our country and brought to justice," Erdogan said.
Erdogan said he won't allow existence of any structure that betrays the state and nation, lays ambushes, sheds blood and causes financial and moral damage.
Erdogan said more than 100 people from many countries were brought to Turkey so far.
Orhan Inandi went missing in Bishkek since June 1.
Inandi is one of four founders of Sapat education network. He heads the network as President since 2001.
He is national of Kyrgyzstan.
In 2000, Orhan Inandi was awarded the title of Excellent Worker of Education of Kyrgyzstan. In 2002, he was awarded the Kyrgyz government's certificate appreciation and was conferred Dank medal in 2003.
Until March 2017, the network was called Sebat. It is part of the international education network of US-based Muslim cleric Fethullah Gulen.
The Sapat network in Kyrgyzstan consists of 15 schools present in all regions of the country and other institutions, Ala-Too International University among them.
Inandi's disappearance sparked a public outcry in Kyrgyzstan. His supporters accused Turkish authorities of his kidnapping over the Sapat's links with Fethullah Gullen.
According to Turkish authorities, Gullen and his cronies were behind the failed attempt of military coup in Turkey on 15 July 2016. Gullen's cronies deny this accusation.
Gullen's schools were shut dow in some countries. Kyrgyzstan was the only country in the world where President Almazbek Atambayev publicly refused to close these schools.
During President Sadyr Japarov's visit to Turkey Erdogan said he does not know Orhan Inandi.
