List includes name of US-based preacher, Fetullah Gulen, leader of the so-called ‘parallel state’

ANKARA – Turkish Interior Ministry has published a list of the country’s “wanted terrorists”, which also includes the name of U.S.-based preacher, Fetullah Gulen, leader of the so-called “parallel state”.

The “parallel state”, known also by the initials FETO/PDY, is a purported clandestine group of Turkish bureaucrats and senior officials embedded in the country’s institutions, including the judiciary and police, led by Gulen and his Hizmet (Service) movement, which allegedly is plotting to overthrow the elected government.

The online list, published Wednesday at www.terorarananlar.pol.tr, is divided into five color-coded categories: red, blue, green, orange and grey.

The red category includes, in addition to Gulen, other suspects, including “top” PKK terrorists Cemil Bayik, Murat Karayilan, and Duran Kalkan.

Bayik is one of the five founders of the terrorist PKK organization, while Karayilan is its acting leader, and Kalkan a senior commander.

In total, 72 PKK, 12 Daesh, 11 FETO/PDY, 2 DKHP-C (far-left Revolutionary People’s Liberation Party Front) and 2 MLK-P (Marxist-Leninist Communist Party) members are included in the list, along with their full names, and date and place of births.

According to the website, any information relevant to arrest or capture of the listed terrorists may result in a monetary award of up to 4 million Turkish liras ($1.38 million).
