Fear of any anti-government protest  reaching the level of paranoia:  HSBC’s Selim Kervanci was being investigated by the prosecutor’s office over a video he retweeted during the so-called Gezi protests in 2013. A clip he shared was from the 2004 German movie “Downfall,” set during Adolf Hitler’s last days and depicting the collapse of Nazi Germany. The indictment seen by Bloomberg alleges the video that Kervanci shared on social media offended Erdogan by drawing parallels with Hitler.
