    Human rights groups say Turkish spies are abducting political opponents of its president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, from foreign countries.

    According to US-based democracy watchdog group “Freedom House”, Turkey has been involved in at least 60 examples over the past three-and-a-half years across 17 countries.

    That includes abductions by Turkish intelligence, and deportations where there was little to no legal process.

    Director of Human Rights Watch in Turkey, Emma Sinclair-Webb says officials are brazenly boasting about the “success” of their intelligence services.
