Istanbul prosecutors on Tuesday issued an arrest warrant for a recently released member of FETO, the terror group responsible for the 2016 defeated coup in Turkey.


The warrant was issued for Ahmet Altan, who was recently sentenced to over 10 years in prison for aiding the terror group but was released on Nov. 4 under judicial control.

After prosecutors objected to his release on Nov. 6, a court sustained the objection and revoked the decision to release him.
