Documents that became bright this time are considered to have been discussed at security-related committees held in secret, behind the scenes, and as a part of monitoring and tracking means by law enforcement agencies, a system that stops vehicles by remote control It is stated that the idea to use was made. Among them, it is said that we will consider the measures to "install the system on all vehicles brought into Europe."
