Dutch PM wants answers on Turkey’s ‘call to report insults’

EINDHOVEN – Agence France-Presse

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said April 22 he will ask Ankara to clarify a call to Turks in the Netherlands to report individuals who insult the Turkey or its president.

Rutte said he was surprised by the apparent plea to Turks living in the country to report insulting or negative comments about President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan or Turkey to the country’s consulate in Rotterdam.

A political storm erupted on April 21 after several Dutch newspapers reported an email apparently sent by the consulate to Turkish organisations in the Netherlands, which asked people to forward disparaging emails and posts on social media such as Facebook and Twitter.

“I am surprised. It’s not clear what the Turkish government aims to achieve with this action,” Rutte told journalists during a joint press conference with visiting GermanChancellor Angela Merkel in the southern city of Eindhoven.

“Our ambassador in Ankara will ask for an explanation,” he said.

The Turkish consulate for its part said the note was sent by a consular official who used an “unfortunate choice of words” that was misinterpreted.

Dutch lawmakers were indignant following the reports, demanding a reaction from Rutte’s government on how it planned to deal with the issue.
