Ditib Turkish Muslim network in Germany denies spying for Turkey
Ditib, a key Turkish Muslim network inside Germany, has denied spying on Gulen movement supporters ostracized by President Tayyip Erdogan. Ditib says its 970 mosques never received instructions to compile lists.
The denial from the Cologne-based Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (Ditib) was carried late Monday by KNA, the Catholic news agency in Bonn.
Preachers or imams at Ditib mosques in Germany have over decades been trained in Turkey and had their salaries paid by Diyanet, the religious affairs presidium attached to the office of Turkey's prime minister.
