The Turkish Foreign Ministry issued a diplomatic note to Germany on Wednesday over reports claiming that Adil Öksüz, one of the suspected masterminds of the failed coup attempt was spotted in Germany.

According to diplomatic sources, Turkey issued the note and requested the extradition of fugitive Adil Öksüz, who is accused of perpetrating the coup attempt on behalf of the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), if he is indeed in Germany.

The ministry asked Germany about if they have any information about the whereabouts of the fugitive and urged the authorities to investigate the claims.

The diplomatic note also reminded the German foreign ministry about the extradition treaty signed between the two countries, urging Öksüz’s extradition if he is found in Germany.

Last week, Turkish media outlets reported that Öksüz was spotted in Frankfurt and Ulm cities, while others claimed that the German state of Baden-Württemberg granted him temporary residency permit.
