Denmark Silent On Alleged Turkish-Organised Political Assassination Plot
The Danish government has remained tight-lipped after allegations that the Turkish government may have plotted the assassination of political opponents living in Denmark.
The alleged plot against supporters of Turkish cleric Fethullah Gülen, who has been accused of being behind the failed coup attempt in summer of 2016 by Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government, was discovered by broadcasters Sveriges Radio and Denmark Radio in June.
Shortly after the broadcasters informed the Danish security police about the potential targets for assassination, those involved were taken into police protection.
The plot is not the first against a Turkish national living in Denmark, according to Sveriges Radio, who said that they were contacted by a man who they call Mehmet, who told them police visited his home in January.
“They said they had been advised that I should be assassinated during the week and that they had to go to a sheltered place,” he said.
