Sweden on Thursday agreed to extradite a Turkish citizen convicted of credit card fraud to Turkey.

Authorities said the extradition is part of a routine matter and Turkey awaits the extradition of terrorists.

The man facing extradition was identified in Swedish court documents as Okan Kale and was convicted in Turkey of credit card fraud in 2013 and 2016.

He sought asylum in Sweden in 2011 but his request was denied.

He was granted refugee status in Italy in 2014.

The Minister of Justice Morgan Johansson said; "This is a normal routine matter.

"The person in question is a Turkish citizen and convicted of fraud offenses in Turkey in 2013 and 2016.

"The Supreme Court has examined the issue as usual and concluded that there are no obstacles to extradition."

Kale has been held in Swedish custody since December 2021.
