Erdogan slams German towns for ‘aiding and abetting terror’ after Turkish rallies axed

Turkish President Recep Erdogan has slammed German communities for “aiding and abetting terror” after they scrapped rallies due to be attended by Turkish ministers advocating for the upcoming constitutional referendum in Turkey.

“They need to be put on trial for aiding and abetting terror,” Erdogan said, apparently referring to the authorities of the communities, Hurriyet Daily reports. The leader noted that “while preventing Turkish leaders from addressing their communities,” Germany has allowed “members of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) leaders to hold rallies.”

Erdogan, who himself was denied an opportunity to address a rally with German-based Turks last year, stressed that at the same time, Germany allowed a video address of a PKK figure, Cemil Bayık, in a rally in Cologne, in September 2016.

“But they are connecting Cemil Bayık from Kandil [Qandil mountains] and he is making his speech there [Germany],” he said. The Qandil area of Iraqi Kurdistan is notable as a PKK sanctuary and headquarters.
