Two Greeks Accused of Spying for Turkey Formally Arrested

Two suspects accused of spying against Greece were formally arrested by the authorities on Friday.
The two are accused of spying by taking photographs and gathering other sensitive information about Greek military installations and troop movements in the southeastern Aegean.
One of the suspects has been identified as a 35-year-old secretary at the Turkish consulate on the eastern Aegean island of Rhodes.
The second suspect, aged 54, was employed as a cook on a passenger ferry connecting the islands of Rhodes and Kastellorizo. Both islands lie close to the Turkish coast.
The 54-year-old had been given five days to prepare his defense. Authorities executed an arrest warrant after the deadline expired on Friday.
The 35-year-old has already pleaded guilty to the charges.
According to intelligence sources, the secretary for the Turkish consulate has been under surveillance as he was openly propagating an “Independent Western Thrace” in the social media.
Investigations have reportedly shown that the 35-year-old traveled frequently to Istanbul, where he had contacts and developed relationships with the Turkish secret services.
He was hired at the Turkish consulate in Rhodes initially as an interpreter, but quickly, according to investigators, he became the “right-hand man” of the consul.
