Der Spiegel reported the German federal government fears that Turkey’s authorities and its secret service MIT have seized data and files of about 50 Turkish citizens who have applied for asylum in Germany while arresting the lawyer in September.

The embassy had instructed the Turkish lawyer to obtain information in Ankara for asylum procedures of Turkish citizens in Germany.
