There is more to this than is being reported. How did the security forces single them out?

Re: Turkey...Ex-British soldier sentenced 8 years

Whilst praising his courage in fighting ISIS..... was it not a bit irresponsible or stupid in picking to holiday in Turkey?

As being an ex-member of the YPG he must have surely known Turkey was viewed as one of the group's enemies and in consequence vice versa. As viewed as a terrorist group in Turkey..


IA...on his return from Syria and Iraqi, he was arrested on suspicion of terrorism offenses by British police at Manchester airport but all charges were dropped after a ten month investigation. So maybe UK security concerns that are shared with Turkish authorities flagged something up on their arrival ??

Or maybe, as both, his girlfriend and himself are active in the Kurdish cause, and have photo's on their social media with him in uniform with YPG flashes and Flag.... they may have innocently mentioned his experiences or shown these photos to some Turks in passing. who as took offense and reported them ...

The photos were used in court by the prosecution. When they were first viewed I don't know...
