Something shady is going down in Tajikistan. Two hundred cars were stolen in Germany and tracked down to Tajikistan, with most of them being driven by friends and family of Tajik President Emomali Rahmon. German and Lithuanian officials were able to track down the cars using GPS.
While a German spokeswoman said there have been talks between the two countries, Tajikistan is denying charges that the president's friends and family are driving stolen cars. The Tajik embassy says the cars in question—93 of which are BMWs—were checked through customs with the necessary legal documents.
The embassy also says the Germain claims are aiming "to damage the reputation of the nation and the head of state." Why the Germans would try and mess with such a small country is beyond us, but here's to hoping this conflict doesn't escalate.
