The detainee is said to have left Germany for Syria in November 2013 where he was involved in the command structure of Daesh. In March 2014, Volkan L. returned to Germany and started to recruit new Daesh members. In the same year, he organized the transfer of at least one person to the territory controlled by the terror group.
