Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf has claimed that Turkish Intelligence Organization (MİT) has prepared “death lists” against the dissident Kurds in European countries. According to the report, MİT has established a base in the Hague to target Kurdish dissidents.
De Telegraaf daily has publised a story with the title “The Hague, nest of Turkish agents” by basin on the voice recording of a conversation allegedly between a MİT agent in the Hague and MİT agent Mustafa Karataş in Hamburg.
The voice recording, which was sent to Die Linke Hamburg State Parliament member Cansu Özdemir via e-mail, has depicted agent Karataş and another MİT member talking about a death list of “PKK members to be eliminated.” The voice recording was also submitted to the Hamburg police.
According to the Dutch newspaper’s report, the MİT agent states that they couldn’t obtain detailed information about former pro-Kurdish Peace and Democracy Party (BDP) deputy Sevahir Bayındır yet. However he said that “She changes places very often and is protected well for being a former parliamentarian. It is not possible to eliminate her totally. We need clear information until 3 hours before the operation.”
MİT agent Karataş, who says “I need money”, is responded by the other MİT agent as: “Let me ask my chief in the Hague about it. I will fly to the Hague to talk the details of this issue with my superiors.”
De Telegraaf daily writes that this conversation strengthens the claims that the MİT has a command control center in the Hague. The report remarks that the Netherlands takes these claims seriously but has made no official statement on the matter yet. The daily wrote that terror expert Edwin Bakker has confirmed that Turkey follows the activities of outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Europe closely and could possibly have a base in the Hague.
