The first step was taken regarding the extradition of fugitive Sezgin Baran Korkmaz, who was arrested in Austria.
Turkey’s Ambassador to Vienna, Ozan Ceyhun, said in a statement about the detention of Sezgin Baran Korkmaz, “We have started the process for extradition on 19 June.”
Ambassador Ceyhun said: “The person in question was detained in a town approximately 260 kilometers from Vienna on 19 June yesterday. And he was brought to Vienna towards evening. He is currently in the Vienna State Criminal Court. He is waiting to appear before the judge. According to the rules, it is very likely that it will come out tomorrow due to the natural flow.”
Fugitive Sezgin Baran Korkmaz, the founder of SBK Holding, about whom a red notice was issued, was arrested yesterday in Austria at the request of the USA.
