A Neo-Nazi German group has sent a pigs head and insulting letters to a Turkish publication that recently began broadcasting in Berlin, according to TRT Deutsch‘s editor-in-chief.

The letter was sent to the TRT Deutsch office and was signed by the Prinz Eugen Group, which is named after a special military brigade that was among soldiers during the Nazi era, Anadolu Agency reported.

The editor-in-chief of TRT Deutsch said there was a pig’s head in the package and insults directed at Islam and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“Keep building your mosques so that enough space is available for our pigs. Get out of Berlin,” the letter read. The letter also describes Turks and Arabs as “the garbage of Europe”.

Director General of TRT TV Channels İbrahim Eren said in a statement: “Those kind of attacks boost our determination as journalist.”

In 2019, a mosque in Germany run by the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB) received letters insulting Islam, Turks and Arabs and an image of a pig. These were signed PEG, the acronym “Prinz Eugen Gruppe”.
