German police raid homes of Turkish imams suspected of Anti-Gulen spies

German police Wednesday searched the homes of four Turkish Muslim preachers on suspicion they spied for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s government, officials said.
The imams are accused of reporting on Turkish followers of Fethullah Gulen, a US-based cult leader who heads an organization on Turkey’s terror list dubbed the Fethullahist Terror Organization (FETO), directed the coup attempt, according to the Turkish government.
The four imams allegedly passed on information through the Turkish consulate in the western city of Cologne to the Turkish Religious Affairs Directorate, known as Diyanet, prosecutors said. The Federal Public Prosecutor’s Office (GBA) said the raids, in the states of North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Palatinate, were to find evidence. No arrests were made.
