Khranjit Nijjer, formerly of the E16 area - which includes Canning Town and North Woolwich - was sentenced today having previously pleaded guilty to two counts of funding terrorism.

"Sending a message... (to Germans) telling them that it's not safe to travel to Turkey is a great political irresponsibility," presidential spokesman Ibrahim Kalin said after Berlin warned it could no longer guarantee its citizens' safety in the country. "We do not accept this," he added in televised comments. Germany on Thursday vowed stinging measures impacting tourism and investment in Turkey and a full "overhaul" of their troubled relations, signalling its patience had snapped after Ankara's arrests of human rights activists. The foreign ministry stepped up its travel advisory for the NATO ally, warning it could no longer guarantee its citizens' safety amid "arbitrary" mass arrests, a step set to hit a sector crucial to Turkey's economy.

Greece was on the frontline at the height of the migrant crisis in 2015, with over 800,000 arriving from Turkey by sea over the course of the year.The influx was reduced dramatically after the European Union agreed to transfer some 3 billion euros to the Turkish government to stem the influx, but Ankara has been accused of loosening its borders again and allowing over 5,000 migrants to enter Greece over the first two months of 2018. The surge came after it was revealed that Germany, France, Austria, Sweden, Denmark, and Finland are arguing with the European Commission over whether another 3 billion euros should come from the bloc’s central budget or national budgets.After days without any new arrivals on the Greek island of Chios, 177 migrants landed on its beaches on Wednesday, prompting an … [Read more...] about Turkey Accused of Allowing Migrants to ‘Surge’ into Europe as Europol Tracks 65,000 People-Smugglers
