‘Accused of spying’

Shim tells Press TV that she has been accused of spying:

I think it’s definitely because of the reporting about Syria [about] the so-called Free Syrian Army going in [Syria] and catching these Takfiri militants and getting their passport stamps and getting first-hand information that they were actually inside while Turkey was still hiding this.

She denies the allegations:

[The Turkish government alleges that] I am spying and that I am working with the Turkish opposition but it’s only logical that I would speak with the Turkish opposition just the same way I would speak with other parties … because that’s my job

She says she is surprised:

I have nothing to hide and I have never done anything aside [from] my job.
