Turkish citizen rams car into bank, saying he against monetary system
A man has rammed his car into a private bank in the southern province of Antalya’s Muratpaşa district, saying he is the “against the monetary system.”
Cem Mustafa Demir was caught as he was about to set the bank vault on fire, Dogan News Agency reported.
“This is a single-handed resistance against the monetary system. I tried to enter the bank. Doesn’t everybody owe the banks? I’m against the monetary system, because it doesn’t work. The effect of the monetary system on the people bears bad results,” the Hurriyet Daily cited him as saying.
Police teams arrived at the scene and were unable to find the driver of the car. After hearing voices from the upper floors of the bank, the police went upstairs and saw Demir attempting to set the bank vault on fire.
He was detained and went through a breath test after police found a beer bottle in the bank. His alcohol level was below the legal limit.
