Turkey has been conducting secret missions in refugee camps and other places in Greece to gather information about critics of the Turkish government and supporters of self-exiled cleric Fethullah Gulen, who have taken refuge in Greece, according to a publication by the Nordic Monitor website.
Titled “Turkish Intelligence Operations in Greece Exposed in Secret Documents,” the report by journalist Abdullah Bozkurt, published on Sunday, claims that the Turkish intelligence agency MIT infiltrated refugee camps in Greece in order to spy on critics of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government.
The article makes reference to secret documents from 2018 and 2019 that compiled data from various government agencies.
According to former and current officials of the Greek security services, Turkey has been trying to gather information about Gulenists in Greece in recent years. The same officials have not ruled out the claim made in the Nordic Monitor regarding missions by MIT in the country, and Athens in particular.
