Istanbul, Nov 9 () - An arrest warrant was issued for Ekrem Dumanlı, the former editor-in-chief of daily Zaman, on Sept. 18 for a “coup attempt” and “forming an organization with felonious intent,” Sabah daily has reported.

According to a Nov. 9 report, the prosecutor conducting the investigation issued a paper to the Istanbul Security General Directorate’s counter-terrorism department on Sept. 18, noting Dumanlı had delivered instructions from U.S.-based Islamic scholar Fethullah Gülen to members of the alleged “Fethullahist Terror Organization (FETÖ) / Parallel State Structure (PDY)” and molded public opinion in line with the organization.

The prosecutor’s office accordingly requested Dumanlı’s detention for the charges.

The report also said the whereabouts of Dumanlı have been unknown since Sept. 18, adding he has not even used his cell phone for fear of detention and he did not cast his vote in the Nov. 1 general elections.

About 20 days after the arrest warrant was issued, Dumanlı announced his resignation on Oct. 5 due to “unlawful pressure on the press and his personality.”

In 2014, Dumanlı, along with several journalists including Samayolu TV head Hidayet Karaca, was detained in a police operation on groups linked to Gülen. Eight suspects, including Dumanlı, were released while the court imposed a travel ban on him.
