 An interesting detail about Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan is that he lived for a period of time in Tetovo, Macedonia.

Former Albanian Consul in Istanbul, Ermal Kaleci, stated to Euronews Albania that Erdogan lived there for several months in 1999. It is learned that Erdogan sought refuge with an Albanian family after his release from prison.

This came after he was sentenced in 1998 for inciting religious hatred due to reciting a poem that compared mosques to barracks and believers to an army. In this incident, he was sentenced to 10 months in prison but served only 4 of them.
