Swiss investigate spying on Turkish community
Switzerland has launched a criminal investigation into possible foreign spying on the country's Turkish community, federal prosecutors said on Friday.

 

The Swiss foreign minister told his Turkish counterpart on Thursday that Switzerland would "rigorously investigate" any illegal spying by Ankara on expatriate Turks before an April 16 referendum that could expand Turkish President Tayyip Erdoğan's powers.

 

For weeks, neutral Switzerland has been trying to avoid becoming entangled in a bitter dispute between Ankara and other European nations over campaigning by Turkish politicians to drum up support for Erdoğan among Turks living abroad.
