Germany: Turkish anti-terror unit cars spotted in Berlin, intimidating Erdogan’s critics

“Turkish ‘police cars’ spotted in Berlin,” translated from “Türkische ‘Polizeiwagen’ in Berlin gesichtet,” Kronen Zeitung, October 11, 2018 (thanks to Searchlight Germany):

The government-critical Turkish journalist Can Dündar lives in Germany under police protection since the state visit of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan. In Berlin, other critics no longer feel safe. To intimidate them, in the German capital several cars drive around which resemble those of the anti-terror unit “Özel Harekat,” as images in social networks show. The police confirmed, meanwhile, corresponding media reports. At least three of the questionably designed cars have been seen so far.

The vehicles, which resemble those of the Turkish special unit, drive openly since the visit of Erdogan to Berlin, as stated in German media reports. In any case, in the case of Turkish opposition members living in Berlin, the cars would cause concern and anxiety. The sightings are now making headlines not only in Germany, but also in Turkey.
