FETO fugitive spotted living high life in US city Fugitive FETO member Hakan Sukur, is seen outside his coffee shop "tuts Bakery-Cafe" in San Francisco, U.S. on November 12, 2017.


A fugitive member of the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), the group behind the deadly defeated coup in Turkey last year, has been filmed living the high life in San Francisco city.

Turkish judiciary has been looking for Hakan Sukur, an ex-footballer, for his links with the FETO terror network.

He was found living in a multi-million-dollar house with three luxurious automobiles in the U.S. city, according to Anadolu Agency reporters who spotted him there.   

Sukur’s house is said to be worth $3 million-worth with an estimated monthly rent of around $7,000; he also runs a cafe-restaurant at Palo Alto, the richest area of San Francisco Bay Area. 

The restaurant has become a hub for FETO members in San Francisco and neighboring cities.

Sukur was a former football player of the Turkish national team who escaped to the U.S. in November 2015; he is also accused of financing FETO’s terror network.

He is among hundreds of FETO members being sought by the Turkish authorities over links with the July 15, 2016, defeated coup.

Led by the U.S.-based Fetullah Gulen, FETO orchestrated the July 15 coup plot -- which left 250 people martyred and nearly 2,200 injured -- as well as carried out a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and the judiciary.
