The head of a Turkish legal association in the country's southern city of Gaziantep said that he filed a complaint against Turkish police and its national intelligence agency after a German documentary revealed that Daesh, also known as ISIL, carried out the slave trade of women in the country, RT reported.
In the documentary produced by German television channel ARD, a Kurdish man tries to buy back a Kurdish Yazidi women sold into slavery. One of the transactions is apparently made in Turkey's Gaziantep, less than 25 miles from the Turkish border.
"We decided to file a complaint after the allegations were made on German ARD TV. They alleged that the Yazidi people were traded by ISIL in a slave market here in Gaziantep. The prosecution must investigate this," Bertas Sarkli, the Gaziantep Bar Association head, told RT.
According to reports, up to 5,000 Yazidi women are being kept as sex slaves by Daesh, in a campaign by the terrorist group, which has been described as a genocide.
Turkey's MIT national intelligence agency has previously been implicated in the smuggling of arms across the Syrian border, which led to the jailing of several journalists, who revealed the case.
