“The nightmare facing so many German citizens who wanted nothing but to spend their vacation in Turkey is continuing. … It can hit anyone who thinks about entering Turkey. A person doesn’t think they’re in danger, and suddenly they’re in a Turkish prison,” said Schaefer, not elaborating on the reasons for the detentions.
