ANKARA (Sputnik) — Turkish prosecutors have issued an arrest warrant for Graham Fuller, a former employee of the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), over his alleged involvement in the 2016 coup attempt, the Hurriyet newspaper reported Friday.
Graham, who served as vice chairman of the National Intelligence Council of the CIA, resided in Turkey during the attempted coup in July 2016 and left the country after it failed, according to the newspaper.
The Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office reportedly believes that Fuller obtained sensitive information for political and military espionage. He is also suspected of having contacts with Henri Barkey, the former director of the Middle East Program at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, as well as accused of organizing and orchestrating the coup alongside other suspects.
The latest high-profile case occurred last week, when the chairman of Guru Media Broadcast Group, Hayreddin Aydinbas, was detained over alleged links to FETO.
