Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag on Friday became the latest figure to criticize Germany for remarks about the July 15 coup attempt.
He accused Chancellor Angela Merkel and her ministers of interfering in Turkey’s justice system.
“Both Merkel and the government spokesperson thought they have right to opine on all ongoing cases,” Bozdag said during a visit to a court in Ankara.
“They have to consider Turkey as independent and sovereign and regard the Turkish justice system as being as independent and neutral as the German justice system. You cannot interfere in Turkey’s interior issues. That is not a German minister’s business.”
Since the coup bid, Western leaders have voiced concerns over the arrests of suspects said to be linked to the Fetullah Terrorist Organization (FETO), which Turkey has accused of being behind the attempt to overthrow the government. The attempt coup saw 246 people martyred.
