Kildag matter adjourned until 21 January

A man wanted in Turkey on decades-old terrorism charges will need to wait an extra day to find out his fate.

58-year-old Celal Kildag was due to appear in court Friday (20 January), which is one day before the deadline for Turkey to send through a formal extradition request to Cayman authorities seeking his return.

The hearing, however, was adjourned until 2 p.m. on Saturday 21 January, which is the deadline for the request to be submitted.

Mr. Kildag was arrested in December after arriving in Cayman on a cruise ship. He denies Turkey’s accusations that he was involved in two shootings in 1988.

He says he’s lived in Germany since the early 1980s.
