Enes Kanter a Turkish, New York Knicks star has been accused of having links with armed groups such as the 2016 failed coup. Turkish prosecutors have issued an international arrest warrant for Kanter and his Turkish passport got cancelled.
Earlier this month Kanter cancelled his trip to London and said he will not participate in his club’s NBA game on Jan 17. He fears that there will be Turkish spies and also stated that he fears being killed.
Kanter has denied the allegations multiple times and wrote on Facebook saying “Turkish government can not present any single piece of evidence of my wrongdoings.”
