Recep Güneş, a Turkish businessman who sought aslyum in Bosnia claiming he fled the Turkish government’s post-coup purge, died on Monday at a public park at the foothills of the Mount Igman on the outskirts of Sarajevo, several media outlets reported.
The cause of death is unknown at this time.
Güneş’s assets were reportedly seized by the Turish government and has been sought in Turkey over his alleged links to the Gülen movement, which is accused of masterminding a coup attempt on July 15, 2016.
The movement denies any involvement.
Güneş reportedly fled Turkey soon after the coup attempt and has been seeking legal protection in Bosnia.
