In August 2015, Özgür Politika, a newspaper known to have close ties with the PKK, and Evrensel, published a photo of the classified document in two articles. In light of the articles, the Berlin Public Prosecutor's Office launched an investigation into the incident. The prime suspect in the investigation is Kunert herself.
Even though Kunert on May 18, 2015, asked for an inquiry into the allegation that the Turkish government delivers arms to some groups in northern Syria, she dismissed the claims and said she has not seen the document and does not have any contact with media outlets that published the document.
Speaking on the subject, Martin Steltner, the spokesperson of the prosecutor's office, said the Bundestag has already pressed charges and the investigation is still ongoing. Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the Bundestag also commented on the issue saying, "In connection with the issue, the president of the Bundestag already ordered an investigation warrant in August."
