The MİT agent who infiltrated the German police
The Turkish-German Police Chief who was removed from duty for working for MİT is revealed to be Döndü Yazgan. Yazgan used to attend meetings by pro-AKP institutions frequently. Her last position was the Wiesbaden Police Harmony Chief.
The Welt am Sonntag newspaper published on Sundays in Germany published an article yesterday about a Turkish-German police chief stationed in the state of Hessen frequently meeting MİT agents and that the chief in question had since been removed from duty.
The Turkish-German police chief’s true identity hadn’t been revealed and she was referred to as “Semra Melek”. The article stated that she contacted the MİT over the Turkish consulates in Frankfurt and Mainz. Sources from Hessen who spoke to the ANF on condition of anonymity state that the police-chief-turned-MİT-agent is Döndü Yazgan.
GOLD STAR PERSONNEL OF DİTİB AND THE CONSULATE
Wiesbaden Police Harmony Chief Döndü Yazgan had a tight relationship with the AKP regime in recent years. One of AKP’s flagship newspapers, the Sabah, frequently published praising articles on Yazgan, who was also an important personnel for the Union of European Turkish Democrats (UETD) and DİTİB, two of the Erdoğan regime’s institutions in Germany.
Yazgan frequently visited DİTİB’s Central Mosque in Wiesbaden. Yazgan participated in the female congregation’s meetings and events as a police chief, supposedly carrying out this activity as part of “harmony efforts”.
SHE INVITED TURKISH POLICE TO GERMANY
Police Chief Yazgan acted as a bridge for the joint projects the Turkish and German police carry out. Most recently, Yazgan led the joint efforts between Mainz and Wiesbaden police and the Turkish police in December 2016.
She acted as the moderator in a workshop titled “Together for security” on December 9, 2016, and Security Affairs Directorate Foreign Relations Vice Chair İlyas Özgentürk, Public Security Branch Vice Chair Raşit Poyraz, Siirt Community Policing Director Mustafa Durmaz and Çankaya District Police Chief Rüstem Özbek attended the workshop.
Police Chief Yazgan was the star in activities of the UETD, AKP’s lobby organization. Yazgan attended UETD and DİTİB events in and around Wiesbaden, and attended former Frankfurt Consul General İlhan Saygılı’s farewell visits to the Turkish community along with UETD Frankfurt official Abdul Akpinar.
HESSEN POLICE CHIEF TRIED TO SUPPORT HER
Döndü Yazgan was born in Ankara, and moved to Germany when she was very young. Her career in the German police began in 1994. After she invited Turkish security units to visit Germany in December last year, German intelligence launched an extended security investigation on Yazgan. The report prepared after the investigation pointed to Yazgan’s relationship with the MİT agents in Germany.
Welt am Sonntag wrote in yesterday’s edition that after the report in question was sent to the German Interior Ministry, Hessen State Police Director Sabine Thurau and Hessen State Office for the Protection of the Constitution Chair Robert Schäfer intervened. Both police chiefs requested the removal of negative statements about Yazgan from the report.
But the units that prepared the report didn’t let the matter go and prepared a new report on the Turkish-German police chief, and as a result the informant officer was removed from duty. An anonymous source spoke to the newspaper and said, “It is clear that the police officer being a woman has given her a positive spin and helped obfuscate her true role.”
MİT ATTEMPTED TO INFILTRATE GERMAN INTELLIGENCE
By early July, MİT’s attempt to infiltrate the German domestic intelligence organization, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, was exposed. MİT attempted to carry out the infiltration over job applicants to the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the intelligence office posted job openings and the Turkish-speaking applicants turned out suspicious in the inquiry.
German intelligence considered the applicants’ ties with the MİT and rejected the applications. The MİT had attempted to infiltrate German police and intelligence agencies in the past through Turkish interpreters, and many interpreters were exposed and removed from duty.
