The Greek newspaper “Greek City Times” said that the “Greek spies” on the island of Rhodes denied that their relationship had exceeded chatter, while security investigations indicated that they “are lying”.
The two supposed “spies”, whose case has interacted since the end of last year, arousing the attention of the Greek media on the island of Rhodes and all of Greece, are the cook Mehmed Nisdin, aged 52 years, and Sabahattin Bayram, 35 years old, the general secretary of the Turkish consulate in this Greek island . They are both indigenous people from the region, as they hail from the “Komotini” area in “Thras” Broadus.
Suspicions of espionage are hovering around both the cook, Muhammad Nazdin, and the Turkish consulate employee, Sabah al-Din Bayram, after they were arrested and placed in prison in mysterious circumstances pending investigations. The possibility of accusations by Athena of Sabah al-Din Bayram and Muhammad Nazdine of spying on the Greek naval fleet on behalf of Ankara remains a list where the Greek security services believe that evidence is available and say that they found in the phones of the Turkish consulate employee pictures of Greek ships and other information about them was exchanged with the cook, Nazdine.
On the other hand, this duo denies all suspicions that swirl around them and assert that their relationship is superficial and does not go beyond exchanging some talk.
The “Greek City Times” newspaper reported that “the evidence points to the opposite” after analyzing the messages and pictures on the phone of the Turkish consulate secretary, who is currently imprisoned, his calls and contacts on social media, and a review of the research he had done on the Internet, the sites he visited, and the files he had downloaded in recent months. .
In his reaction to this issue, Masoud Hakki Kasin, an advisor to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said at the end of last December that Ankara is also able to “do the same” and arrest the Greek Consul General in Izmir to respond to Athena’s arrest of the Turkish consulate employee on the island Rhodes is charged with espionage.
The position of the Turkish President’s advisor came after the Turkish Foreign Ministry condemned the arrest of Athena, its employee in Rhodes.
The issue is likely to have more developments in the coming days and weeks, in a circumstance dominated by tension between Ankara and Athens against the background of the geopolitical / economic conflict in the eastern Mediterranean.
