The six Turkish nationals forcefully removed from Kosovo in March were deported through a misrepresented commercial flight, the Civil Aviation Authority confirmed today.

The airline company, whose plane carried the six Turkish nationals who were forcefully removed from Kosovo to Turkey in March, misrepresented its flight’s purpose.

On March 29, six Turkish nationals were deported from Kosovo to Turkey after a joint operation of the Kosovo Intelligence Agency, AKI, and the Kosovo Police. According to the Ministry of Interior, the deportees represented a threat to national security and were deported to their country of citizenship where they face charges for being members of the Fethullah Gulen movement, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization.

Dritan Gjonbalaj, director of the Kosovo Civil Aviation Authority, CAA, said that the airline company which transported the six men was dishonest about the flight’s purpose.
