La Casa de Papel's Turkish version 'not needed since AKP already robbed Turkey'

Turkish opposition parties said that a Turkish version of La Casa de Papel, Money Heist in English, was redundant because the ruling AKP had already robbed the country. Main opposition leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said that robbers of Turkey's Royal Mint simply went in through the back door.

The Turkish opposition spoke out about a Turkish remake of the hit TV series La Casa de Papel, saying that the version would be redundant because the country had already been robbed by the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). 

Centered around the fictional "largest heist in history," La Casa de Papel, Money Heist in English, focuses on a criminal group who break into the Royal Mint of Spain through the walls and print out large amounts of money. 

A Turkish version based on the show and called La Hay de Maske started filming on May 16, Turkish media reported. 

"But that's already been done in this country. It wasn't a show, just a short movie. They went in through the back door instead of the walls," said main opposition Republican People's Party (CHP) leader Kemal Kılıçdaroğlu said in a tweet about the remake. 

"You're late, the safe is completely empty," said pro-Kurdish Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) co-chair Pelvin Buldan said in a tweet. 

The HDP and CHP have been collaborating recently about the $128 billion that went missing from the Central Bank's FX reserves.

The CHP has been asking where the missing $128 billion dollars in Central Bank's foreign exchange reserves were spent as part of a political campaign that drew a harsh rebuke from President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan's ruling AKP.
