A Turkish teacher who remained in detention for nine months after the Turkish government’s relentless quest for his extradition has been released by Georgia.
Mustafa Emre Cabuk, a teacher and an official at a Gulen-linked school in Georgia was caught at Turkish government’s sprawling global manhunt against members of Gulen movement. Ankara sought his extradition.
Last week, EU Parliamentarian Rebecca Harms visited the teacher in jail and urged Georgian officials to release him.
