The Istanbul prosecutor’s office has asked a US consulate employee in Turkey for up to 15 years in prison for his alleged ties to clergyman Fetulá Gulen, who was charged with terrorism after being accused of instigating the failed coup in 2016.

The prosecutor has ordered security officer Nazmi Mete Canturk between seven and a half and 15 years in prison for “frequent contact” with police chiefs, who, according to the report collected by the official news agency, are also accused of having links to Gulen Turkish Anatolia.

Canturk’s wife and daughter, who have also been charged with links to Gulen, were acquitted for lack of evidence, the court said.
