Sabah newspaper reported Turkish prosecutors are seeking a warrant for the arrest of New York Knicks center Enes Kanter on accusations he is part of a terrorist organization.
Chief prosecutors in Istanbul reportedly have prepared an extradition request for Kanter, who responded to the report immediately via Twitter on Wednesday.
Government - Piece - Evidence - Wrongdoing - Kanter
“Turkish Government can NOT present any single piece of evidence of my wrongdoing,” Kanter wrote. “I don’t even have a parking ticket in the US (True). I have always been a law-abiding resident.”
Kanter’s Turkish passport was revoked in 2017 and he refused to travel to London with the Knicks this week, claiming spies or other Turkish operatives could assassinate him.
