Dutch riot police break up Turkish protest in Rotterdam

Lynsey_ADMIN_Lynsey_ADMIN_ Administrator
A diplomatic row between Turkey and the Netherlands escalates, after two Turkish ministers are prevented from addressing a rally.

Dutch riot police have broken up a protest by more than 1,000 supporters of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, after diplomatic tensions between Turkey and the Netherlands.

Demonstrators had gathered outside the Turkish consulate in Rotterdam to show support for Mr Erdogan after two Turkish ministers were prevented from addressing a rally in the Dutch city ahead of Turkey's referendum next month.

Mr Erdogan is looking to gain support from the large number of Turkish people living in Europe to help clinch victory in the 16 April referendum that could give him sweeping new powers.

But the Dutch authorities view the referendum as a step backwards from democracy and have told Ankara to keep its ministers away.

Police using water cannon, horses and dogs moved in to disperse the crowds after several hours of demonstrations on Saturday evening.

Protesters hit back, throwing rocks at the police, while hundreds of cars jammed the streets blaring their horns.

Tensions tipped over into violence after a day of fast-moving events, triggered when Turkey's family affairs minister Sayan Kaya was stopped from attending the rally by being expelled from the Netherlands.

    Dutch police deport Turkish minister to Germany after barring her from consulate in Rotterdam

    Turkey’s family affairs minister has been escorted to the Dutch-German border as crowds of Turkish protesters rallied at the consulate in Rotterdam. The minister was earlier prevented from staging a pro-Erdogan rally outside the diplomatic premises.

    Fatma Betul Sayan Kaya was detained by the Dutch police at the consulate before being further escorted to Germany, RTL News reported.

    Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte issued a statement, calling the visit of the Turkish minister “irresponsible” and the rhetoric by Turkish authorities “unacceptable.”

    “In mutual contact with Turkey, Netherlands has repeatedly made it clear that public order and security in our country should not be compromised,” Rutte said, adding that the Dutch government repeatedly told its Turkish counterparts that Kaya is “not welcome in the Netherlands.”

    if they feel the need to attack the Police in the country they have decided to live in, maybe they should go back to the country they seem to want to fight for but not live in
