Halil Falyalı, named after Sedat Peker, is wanted by the USA.
It has been revealed that the United States is wanted for Halil Falyalı, whom organized crime leader Sedat Pekeri accused of trading cocaine with former Prime Minister Binali Yıldırım’s son Erkan Yıldırım and Mehmet Ağar.
The US Court has been searching for Halil Falyalı and the two names since 2016 on charges of international money laundering and drug trafficking. The case file is pending, there is no trial in absentia in the USA.
In May 2011, a lawsuit was filed against Halil Falyalı, who was named after the nationalist mafia Sedat Peker, on charges of money laundering and drugs in the State of Virginia.
CASE FILE NO 1:15MJ371
LOCATION OF CASE: EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA
(VIRGINIA EAST REGIONAL COURT)
INVESTIGATION AGENT: TIMOTHY D. MCGRATH (special agent)
GOODS AND MONEY WERE HIDDEN IN VIRGINIA
The defendants in the lawsuit filed in the Eastern District Court of Virginia were Halil Falyalı, his brother Hüsnü Falyalı and Hüsnü Demir. Three men were accused of money laundering. Goods and money brought illegally from abroad by monetary means were laundered in Virginia.
It was also stated that many instruments were used in the black money trade, which included drugs. And the Eastern District Court of Virginia claimed that the illegal proceeds were used within the scope of illegal activities.
Halil Falyalı and two other names, who are still in Cyprus and trying to clear the drug trafficking allegations against him through social media interviews, were convicted by the above-mentioned court.
APPROVAL DECISION ,
Since Halil Falyalı, his brother Hüsnü Falyalı and Özgür Demir are fugitives, the case against them is not concluded. In the United States, defendants cannot be tried in court in absentia unless they are caught. With the “Wanted” announcement, the case file is put on hold. Since the USA does not recognize the TRNC as a state, there is no extradition agreement between the USA and Northern Cyprus.
