US consulate employee handed out 5 year jail term by Turkey

Mete Canturk, a local employee of the U.S. Consulate in Istanbul was convicted by a Turkish court on Tuesday of aiding a terrorist organization and sentenced to five years and two months in prison. Canturk was found to be ’knowingly and willingly’ helping U.S.-based Turkish cleric Fethullah Gulen’s network which Turkey says orchestrated a 2016 coup attempt but the US considers the claims baseless.

Unfortunately, there is nothing to do here. The guy is a citizen of Turkey and has no diplomatic immunity. However, this does show that Erdogan is no one's friend.

Gullen is not a terrorist... He just builds schools, how and why would he stage a coup? Just because his supporters don't like Erdogan?
