What kinds of treason are there in Turkey?
posted 3 years ago
A Turkish MP has publicized that Sarin gas has been sent through Turkey to Syria and that he is now wanted for the crime of treason. I am located in Germany, and according to our law, leaking state secrets to the enemy or the public, with the intent to harm the F.R.G. or to benefit a foreign power will constitute the crime of treason.
The allegations of the aforementioned Turkish MP are vague and would have been plausibly deniable, which they are no longer if the Turkish head of state orders an investigation for treason as per the German definition of "Landesverrat".
Is the assumption correct that by ordering a treason investigation, Erdogan has given away that the story is true? Or what other "kinds" of treason are there in Turkey, that may allow for plausible deniability despite an investigation?
