Former Syrian Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) co-leader Salih Müslim was released by a Czech court on Feb. 27, despite a request from Turkey for his extradition.
Muslim was detained by Czech police late on Feb. 24 at the request of the Turkish authorities.
Muslim’s lawyer told reporters his client had promised the court not to obstruct further proceedings.
Turkey accuses the former PYD leader of “attempting to disrupt the unity and territorial integrity of the state” through a series of terror attacks on Turkish soil that claimed the lives of scores of civilians.
In previous years Muslim liaised with Ankara on a number of diplomatic issues related to Syria, but has since been put on the Turkish Interior Ministry’s “most wanted terrorists” list, with a $1 million bounty on his head.
