Media: Turkish military personnel at the Ramstein base asked for political asylum from Berlin
RIA News with reference to foreign sources, reports that a group of Turkish soldiers stationed at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany requested political asylum from Berlin. There are no exact data on the number of people who applied to the German authorities, but, according to German media, at least NATO representatives from the Turkish armed forces are serving at the NATO air base.
The submission says that the Turkish military men expressed fears about returning to Turkey in connection with the country's ongoing real hunt for suspects in preparing a coup d'etat. The servicemen say that the Turkish authorities can fabricate accusations against them, accusing, for example, of having links with foreign intelligence services or with the people of Fethullah Gulen (a preacher, who Ankara considers the main ideologue of the coup) in Germany. The appeal to the German authorities was reportedly received right now, since rotational events of representatives of the Turkish Armed Forces in Germany are scheduled for December.
For the time being, no mention is made of the reaction of the official authorities of the Federal Republic of Germany to the appeal of the Turkish military personnel. At the same time, appeals of representatives of the large Turkish diaspora to Merkel appeared in the social networking segment of Germany with the aim of giving a positive answer.
At the same time, arrests of alleged participants or supporters of a coup attempt are continuing in Turkey. The number of those arrested is already tens of thousands. According to human rights organizations, the majority of those arrested are military personnel. Methods of psychological influence are often used against them against the background of overt torture.
