Turkish man wanted for shooting two co-nationals is caught in Voluntari

A Turkish citizen with an international search warrant made out in his name by authorities in Ankara for shooting two co-nationals in front a bar ten years ago was caught by the Criminal Investigations Directorate within IGPR (General Police Inspectorate of Romania). According to police sources, the man’s name is Fatih Yangircan and he was charged by the Turkish police for injuring two men on 17 December 2003 and shooting them in front a bar. The Turk apparently fled the country afterward and settled in Romania, where he started a business. A European arrest warrant was issued in Yangircan’s name on 19 July for “bodily harm and carrying a weapon and ammunition without a license”. The man was transported yesterday to the Court of Appeal in Bucharest where it was decided that he be remanded in custody for 29 days, and ultimately be extradited in Turkey.
