Bin Laden’s son-in-law reportedly arrested in Ankara

PanARMENIAN.Net - Osama bin Laden’s son-in-law was arrested in Ankara by Turkish security forces after Washington allegedly informed Turkey’s National Intelligence Organization (MİT) about his location, Hurriyet Daily News reported.

Suleyman M., son-in-law of former al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, was allegedly staying at a camp in Iran after the Sept 11 attack on the World Trade Center in 2001.

He entered Turkey using a fake Saudi Arabian passport. Daily Milliyet, which first reported the news, claimed that the United States learned Suleyman M. was in Ankara and informed MİT. Turkish security forces captured him at a hotel in Çankaya district of Ankara.

U.S. Navy SEALS killed al-Qaeda leader Bin Laden at his compound in Pakistan on May 4, 2011. Kuwait revoked Suleyman M.’s citizenship after the U.S. issued an arrest warrant for him on charges of involvement in terrorist activities.

A Turkish court decided to release Suleyman M. on the grounds that he had not committed any crimes other than entering the country with a fake passport. However, he was not released and was returned to the police department for extradition from the country. The daily also said Suleyman M. would be extradited back to Iran. The U.S. reportedly asked Turkey to give Suleyman M. to the U.S. for interrogation on alleged al-Qaeda activities.
