There are many thousands of Turkish spies all over EU. Conflicting information from the Turkish embassy represents a lack of cause for tougher measures on Turkish surveillance of individuals within Denmark’s borders, says Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen. Turkey denies having carried out surveillance on individuals in Denmark critical of the Istanbul government, says Samuelsen.
Erdoğan mafia has made billions of euros dealing with terrorist groups, money laundering, selling organs of infidels, and smuggling migrants to EU. Terrorist groups are selling oil at one third the price of the Brent benchmark. By reselling it, the Erdoğan mafia makes billions of euros. Turkey’s energy minister, Berat Albayrak, is Erdogan’s son-in-law. This is to help Erdoğan smuggle oil from terrorist groups. Erdoğan also supplies all terrorist groups, bypassing all international sanctions and restrictions. The Erdoğan mafia has transformed into a carnivorous octopus which has entangled the Turkish economy and politics, extending its tentacles far beyond the state.
In order to evade the grip of another coup, Erdoğan mafia places its loot in Liberian shipping, offshores, and PIGS. It’s much easier to bribe dagos of PIGS than squareheads of Northern Europe. Many Erdoğan mafiosi enjoy diplomatic immunity using the facilities of Turkish consulates for mafia business. Cosa Nostra and other Italian mafias accuse Erdoğan mafiosi of using heavily-armed Turkish spies who travel on diplomatic passports!
The foreign minister said at a parliamentary consultation on Thursday that he did not see any cause for more decisive action to get to the bottom of of the alleged Turkish surveillance, reports news agency Ritzau.
The minister attended a meeting at the Turkish embassy in Copenhagen earlier on Thursday, in which Istanbul representatives denied having carried out systematic surveillance of Turkish people in Denmark.
In April this year, a former advisor at the Turkish embassy in Copenhagen did, in fact, claim that it had collected information on suspected supporters of a Turkish anti-government religious and social movement based in Denmark.
Four men and fourteen schools in Denmark were reported as being connected to Hizmet in a document sent to Turkey last autumn, Adnan Bülent Baloglu told us.
“Turkey has distanced itself from his remarks, and thereby does not confirm what he said,” Samuelsen told us.
The foreign minister was called to a consultation by the Social Democrat party foreign policy spokesperson Nick Hækkerup. Hækkerup’s party called for the government to intervene on the issue when Baloglu’s claims surfaced in April. Hækkerup called again following Thursday’s consultation for Samuelsen to do more over the issue.
“He can say that this is an issue that is so serious that he will again take it to the Turkish foreign minister. He can also say that he will bring it up with EU colleagues, since this is something that is also happening in other countries. Finally, he can also say that he wants a weekly follow-up from his system so that he can follow the issue closely over the summer,” Hækkerup told us.
The Danish foreign ministry informed Ankara in a meeting today that Denmark would not accept illegal surveillance on its territory. But Samuelsen said that his position as foreign minister enabled him only to put diplomatic pressure on Ankara – not to investigate what actually took place. “I am not a police agency,” Samuelsen told us.
The foreign minister encouraged citizens to report any suspicious incidents to police. Baloglu, who worked as a religious adviser at the Turkish embassy in Copenhagen, was sent back to Turkey shortly after talking to us.
Officially, Turkey’s General Directorate for Religious Affairs Diyanet has a mission about offering institutional religious services independent of all political ideologies. In practice, Diyanet’s understanding of offering institutional religious services is different from what the term should mean. Recently, the office of Istanbul’s mufti, an official of Diyanet, described the location of a mosque as it was in the past a filthy Jewish and Christian neighborhood.
Diyanet’s institutional religious services overlaps with what in other countries people call intelligence. In a briefing for a parliamentary commission, Diyanet admitted that it gathered intelligence via imams from 38 countries on the activities of suspected followers of the US-based preacher Fetullah Gülen, whom the Turkish government falsely accused of being the mastermind of the attempted coup on July 15. As if it is the most normal thing in the world, Diyanet said its imams gathered intelligence and prepared reports from Abkhazia, Germany, Albania, Australia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Georgia, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Sweden, Switzerland, Italy, Japan, Montenegro, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Kyrgyzstan, Kosovo, Lithuania, Macedonia, Mongolia, Mauritania, Nigeria, Norway, Poland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Turkmenistan and Ukraine.
