DC police seek arrest of Turks for melee, angering Erdogan

DC police seek arrest of Turks for melee, angering Erdogan

Two other suspects, whose charges were announced Thursday alongside the Turkish security personnel, are Canadian citizens, Newsham said. He also said two arrests had been made on Wednesday.

The Metropolitan Police Department said in a brief statement that Sinan Narin had been arrested in Virginia on an aggravated assault charge.

Mahmut Sami Ellialti, who told CBC in 2016 that he is a friend of Dereci, was charged with felony aggravated assault and felony assault with significant bodily injury.

The entire security detail for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey left the country with him just hours after the incident.

The violence erupted on May 16 when Turkish security officials and counter-protesters clashed with demonstrators near the ambassador's residence, where Erdogan stayed after meetings with President Trump at the White House. Newsham referred all questions regarding extradition to the State Department but said that all of the foreign suspects would be arrested should they ever attempt to enter the United States.

Erdogan watched the beatdown from his vehicle and a few hours later left the country with his security detail - which presents a bit of a problem with actually meting out punishment.

Earlier Wednesday, two Turkish men living in the United States had been arrested for their role in beating protesters outside the Turkish embassy on May 16.

DC police have reportedly identified 34 of the 42 people who were allegedly involved in the broad daylight melee. It accused the protesters of "aggressively provoking Turkish-American citizens who had peacefully assembled to greet the president".

"Any additional actions regarding execution of these warrants will be weighed by the State Department as appropriate under relevant laws and regulations", he added, noting the State Department has been helpful in supporting the investigation, and insisting no one from the Turkish embassy has been implicated.

Andrea Constand Wiki: 5 Facts to Know about Bill Cosby's Accuser
So far, more than 50 women have come forward to accuse the former Cosby Show actor of drugging and sexually assaulting them. Los Angeles lawyer Angela Agrusa spent a painstaking hour going over Andrea Constand's old phone records. "Put them down.

Coming nearly a month after the incident, the charges are the most significant retaliatory step taken to date by USA authorities, who have fumed privately and publicly over what they see as a highly offensive attack on free speech - not to mention United States law enforcement. Nine people were hospitalized. "We are hopeful that those responsible will do their part and present themselves to answer to these charges", Newsham said.

The Turkish government went on the offensive over the incident, summoning the USA ambassador to complain about the "aggressive" behaviour of Washington security personnel.

A video posted online has shown men in dark suits chasing anti-government protesters and punching and kicking them as police intervened.

The ministry also noted that such an incident would not have occurred had USA authorities taken the proper measures they take during similar high level visits. Police and other officials say various members of visiting Erdogan's security team, some of them armed, attacked a group protesting his regime as police struggled to restore order and bystanders recorded with phones.

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was sitting in a auto nearby when the incident occurred.

"We all saw the violence that was perpetrated against the protesters", Newsham said.

The foreign ministry said that USA officials did not take necessary measures to protect the Turkish president, leading to security breaches.

In video annotated by The New York Times, Muhsin Kose, identified as Mr. Erdogan's head of security, is seen next to the Turkish president and speaks into an earpiece before three guards are seen departing.
