Why does the TRNC need a riot vehicle?

16 September 2013

Turkish Cypriot daily ‘Afrika’ has asked whether or not a riot vehicle, known as TOMA, will be sent to the TRNC in September.

Speaking in an interview with the paper, Prime Minister Yorgancioglu said he had not been informed on this issue, but even if such vehicle were received, it would not be used against the people.

The paper wondered for what purpose then, would this vehicle would be used and recalls that such vehicles have been used in Turkey against the protesters during the Gezi Park incidents in Istanbul and are still being used against protesters all over the country.
