Saudi sisters plead not to be returned to the Kingdom

Siblings were arrested in Turkey after, apparently, authorities received a request from the KSA embassy

This has nothing to do with religion, tribality or gender. Being an adult is all well and good but that's not how the world works. In fact especially because they are women, they would receive global airtime to speak against KSA. If Turkey didn't agree to allow extradition, KSA would take that to doubt Turkey's reliability as an ally. And frankly, every country in the world does this. Edward Snowden after all, is an adult as well.
