Sweden extradited Mahmut Tat, a member of the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK)/Kurdistan Communities Union (KCK), to Turkey, Anadolu Agency reports.

Tat was sentenced to six years and ten months in prison in Sweden after he was arrested on charges of being a member of the PKK/KCK.

He had applied for asylum in Sweden in 2015, but was denied.

Tat was taken to a detention center in Molndal.

After completing procedures he was sent to Turkey by plane.

In May, Sweden and Finland formally applied for NATO membership, but Turkey started creating obstacles by positing its own preconditions.
