Memet Gezer, the alleged mastermind of the 2013 bombings in the southern Turkish town of Reyhanlı, has been extradited from the United States where he was incarcerated, Turkish media outlets reported on Thursday.
Gezer was captured in 2016 in Montenegro and extradited to the United States where he was jailed on charges of drug and weapon smuggling. Gezer was charged by U.S. authorities with attempting to sell informants working for law enforcement weapons.
Turkish police said in a statement that Gezer was deported to Turkey and arrived in Istanbul on Thursday. The statement noted that Yusuf Nazik, who was convicted of orchestrating the Reyhanlı attacks, said in his statements to investigators that he was ordered to carry out the bombings by Gezer.
Gezer was wanted by Turkey on charges of membership in a terrorist organization and “disrupting the state’s integrity” (a terrorism-related crime) while he had an international arrest warrant on charges of trading drugs.
