Istanbul MP slams German raids on Turkish imams' homes
Police raids on the houses of four imams accused of spying for the Turkish government in Germany is unacceptable, the head of the Turkish parliament's Human Rights Commission said on Thursday.
Speaking to Anadolu Agency, Mustafa Yeneroglu said the police operations were politically motivated.
The Istanbul lawmaker said the raids on the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), an organization controlled by Ankara that manages some 900 mosques or religious communities in Germany, were not new but had recently increased.
