Germany protests Turkish-born writer's arrest in Spain

Germany protests Turkish-born writer's arrest in Spain

Germans go to the polls on September 24th for elections where Merkel is running for a fourth term. In April, Turks narrowly backed a referendum to change the constitution and grant Erdogan sweeping executive powers.

German Green MP Volker Beck said the move was politically motivated and that he had requested that Mr Akhanli should not be extradited to Turkey.

He has lashed out at Germany before.

This seems to be the latest diplomatic shot fired between the two countries in an increasingly strained relationship. That refusal, he said, was "Nazi-style" behaviour.

He added that they have not asked her too many questions. "And maybe she could give us some insight and fill in the blank spaces". She has some complications and has a lot of healing to get through but she is standing strong and full of jokes as ever .

Erdogan's remarks come after another week of tension between Ankara and Berlin, particularly over comments by German Chancellor Angela Merkel appearing to rule out a renewal of a Customs Union deal between Turkey and the European Union.

The theology professor is alleged to be the "imam" to FETO members in the air force and a key link between USA -based FETO leader Fetullah Gulen and coup plotters in Turkey. The cleric denied any role in the plot.

Mr Akhanli, 60, has written about the killing in 2007 of Turkish-Armenian journalist Hrant Dink and the 1915 killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turks, which was labelled as genocide by the German parliament past year. "We stand even more with those who are fighting for a free and democratic Turkey". "In a way this is a struggle of honour for all my citizens living in Germany", he said, implying that voters should back far-right or far-left parties. Merkel's CDU is now favored to win, with the SPD - also denounced by Erdogan - running in second place.

Addressing Merkel as "Madam", Erdogan said the Turkish authorities had sent Germany dossiers on 4,500 suspects wanted for extradition to Germany on terror charges and received no answer. He added that this was now a matter of pride and that they should instead vote for political parties that didn't oppose Turkey. He jailed or sacked thousands of people in revenge.
