Flynn - in the new procedure as "Person A" had founded jointly with Rafiekian a company called "Flynn Intel Group". The company received for the three-month project for Turkey, according to information from the judicial authorities of 530,000 dollars (about 467.000 Euro).

Turkey attacks hard against Gülen members
representatives of the Gülen-informed movement in the United States, the new indictment does not show that the government is afraid of Erdogan's before that, back to break US laws.

The two are accused of conspiracy and illegal agent activity for the Turkish government. Alptekin is also accused of the four times a false statement to the Federal police FBI.
