And last Friday, the American police arrested the perpetrator of the attack against the “Turkish House” in New York on May 22, called “Recep Akbiyik” (29 years old).

And the US judiciary decided to “conditionally release” the accused, who was charged with “attempted theft, a terrorist offense, possession of a weapon for the purpose of committing a crime, terrorist threats, inflicting punitive damages, and making threats.”

The court judge prohibited Akbiyik from approaching the Turkish house, which includes Ankara’s permanent representation to the United Nations and its consulate in New York.
