    Free Enes!!!

    Tweeted that he is stuck in Romania as the Turkish Embassy has canceled his passport.

    Kanter has been a vocal opponent of the current Turkish leader.

    Break out your old "Free Enes" shirts, they may have taken on a whole new meaning.

    If he remains critical of Erdogan, he would be wise to never return to Turkey. If he ever goes back to Turkey, that likely will be the last time we see him. That is the way it is in Turkey these days.

    I was wondering if he had much family left in Turkey. If I were them I'd get out as quickly as possible.

    Turkish Prosecutors are pursuing Extradition through Interpol for the arrest and return of Enes to Turkey.

    Turkey Seeks Warrant for Arrest of Enes Kanter

    Sabah says prosecutors are seeking an Interpol “Red Notice” citing Kanter’s ties to Fethullah Gulen, who is blamed for a failed coup in 2016, and accusing him of providing financial support to his group.

    They have "Publicly" disowned him...probably the safest thing for them to do.
