The getaway car used in the murder of Saban Berk in Amsterdam on Monday night, was often spotted in the vicinity of the gym where he gave classes. The police believe that the perpetrators of the shooting may have been keeping an eye on him, a spokesperson said to Het Parool.
A man shot and killed on Papaverweg in Amsterdam Noord on Monday night, was identified as gym owner Saban Berk. In 2014 the gym owner told Dutch media that he was often mistaken for, still at large, sex trafficker Saban B. He does not only have the same first name as the convicted human trafficker, but also a similar appearance, NU.nl reports.
