A Turkish court acquitted a jihadist who went to fight in Syria, part of the government’s revolving door policy in the criminal justice system that consistently fails to crack down on al-Qaeda and the Islamic State in Iraq and Levant the (ISIL).

The suspect is a 20-year-old man who was radicalized in Turkey’s southeastern border province of Adana by jihadist outfits that operate under the cover of NGOs with the full knowledge of authorities. Mahmut Ortaç, a resident of the town of Seyhan in Adana province, crossed into Syria illegally in June 2017 and spent time there with jihadist groups.
