Turkey seeks warrant for Enes Kanter of New York Knicks



ANKARA, Turkey – Turkish prosecutors are seeking an international arrest warrant for the Enes Kanter in New York's Knicks accusing him of membership in a terrorist organization.

The Sabah newspaper says the Istanbul Procuratorate has also prepared a despatch request for the NBA player.

The newspaper says prosecutors are looking for a "Red Notice" from Interpol citing Kanter's links to Fethullah Gülen, who is blamed for a failed coup in 2016 and accused of having financially supported his group. Officials of the prosecution could not be used for comment.

Kanter responded to the report in a tweet on Wednesday.

Earlier this month, Kanter refused to travel to London for a regular NBA game because he was worried about his opposition to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Kanter's Turkish passport was canceled in 2017.
