Nothing has been said about this for a while now.
Turkish military personnel with assignment to NATO staff duty unwilling to return home. Subject to arrest in the aftermath of the recent coup attempt? NOW SEEKING ASYLUM IN GERMANY!
"Report: 60 diplomatic passport holders, mostly soldiers, seeking asylum in Germany"
"According to a report in Deutsche Welle (DW) on Tuesday, most of the 60 Turkish diplomatic passport holders who are seeking asylum in Germany in the post coup period are military personnel who were representing Turkey at NATO. Given the fact that the military personnel at NATO have classified information regarding Turkey, which is a NATO ally, German officials are reportedly evaluating the applications with sensitivity. In an earlier report in October, German media said that 35 Turkish diplomatic passport holders had applied to Germany for political asylum."
Those military personnel seen as beholden to Gulen and his ideology? Too dangerous for them to ever return to Turkey. AND ASYLUM SEEKERS POSSESSING SECRET KNOWLEDGE AS MIGHT BE SOUGHT BY THE HIGHEST BIDDER!
THIS IS A SENSITIVE MATTER INDEED! TURKEY SEEN AS VITAL TO NATO INTERESTS. DO NOT ROCK THE BOAT WITH ERDOGAN!
