Turkish Cypriot businessman, Asil Nadir, who was under arrest in the UK has been returned to Turkey. Answering the questions of a TAK correspondent regarding the issue, the Director of Cyprus Media Group Fehim Nevzat said that Asil Nadir flew from London to İstanbul last night and it is not known when he will be in the TRNC.

Nadir fled to Britain in 2010 to be cleared of blame to charges and he was unexpectedly sentenced to imprisonment in Britain in 2012.

Nadir who takes place among the most respected businessmen of the world came under fire especially by the Greek Cypriot conservative environments and due to the unfair blaming, he had to leave his huge Polly Peck International Company and returned to his country at the beginning of 1990.

British justice did not give permission to submit the evidence which would prove that Asil was not guilty to the court due to the principles of the country’s national interests and confidentiality.
