Turkish state media claims that a Greek spy has been apprehended in the country, but Greece denies the claims.

Turkey alleged that Greek citizen Mohammmed Amar Ampara was spying on the country on behalf of the Greek National Intelligence Organization, and was eventually caught by the Turkish National Intelligence Organization.

According to Turkish state media, Ampara was allegedly pretending to be a businessman in Turkey, all the while passing on sensitive information about the Turkish army and border patrol to Greece.

Turkey also claimed that the “Greek spy” was conducting research on Syrians in Turkey, as well as on the Gülenists, supporters of Fethullah Gülen, whose organization, FETO, is classified as terrorist by Ankara.

Ankara accuses FETO of being behind a long-running campaign to overthrow the state through the infiltration of Turkish institutions, particularly the military, police, and judiciary.

Turkey claims that FETO and Gülen orchestrated the defeated coup of July 15, 2016. It says thousands of FETO members fled to Greece after the coup attempt.

Greece denies all of the claims made by Turkey regarding espionage.
