A Turkish court has ordered a German citizen who was detained in southern Turkey last week to be released but banned him from leaving the country.
Axar.az reports citing the news agency Dogan.
The released man and his German partner were detained while on holiday in Antalya. The partner had already been freed after questioning, Dogan said.
A spokeswoman for Germany’s Foreign Ministry confirmed the man had been freed. “He is banned from leaving the country,” she said.
Dogan said the couple had been held as part of investigations into a network of supporters of U.S.-based cleric Fethullah Gulen.
