Turkey seeks arrest of NBA's Kanter


"Istanbul (AFP) - Turkey issued an arrest warrant on Friday for Turkish NBA star Enes Kanter, accusing him of being a member of a "terror group", a pro-government newspaper reported. … The Swiss-born star hit back at the Sabah story on Twitter, sharing a screenshot of the article, adding: "You cannot catch me. Hahaha. Don't waste your energy. "I am already going to come to (Turkey) to spit on all of your ugly, hate-filled faces." Sabah daily added that the prosecutor would apply for an Interpol red notice -- to inform Interpol's 190 members that someone's arrest is sought and thus ensure their deportation -- to the justice ministry. Kanter, who has compared Erdogan to Adolf Hitler, was detained in Romania at the weekend after being informed that his Turkish passport had been cancelled. He claimed the cancellation was linked to his criticism of Erdogan's government and told reporters on Monday he would seek American citizenship." -


Kanter can stay in a Sanctuary City, on my couch.
