The alleged member of Muslim cleric Gulen's Hizmet movement, recently arrested in Albania seeks political asylum in this country. Muhammed Aydogmus, accused as terrorist by Turkish authorities officially seeks protection by the Albanian authorities for himself and his family.
His request follows the rejection two days ago by Durresi court of the extradition to Turkey request on view of the fact that it was no supported by proofs. Aydogmus was immediately released after the court's verdict issuing and submitted the request for political asylum in Albania.
It now remains to be seen if this request, which may be also seen as a test to Albania - Turkey relations, will be accepted by the Albanian authorities.
