Dutch MP: summon the Turkish ambassador


Barendrecht – The Socialist MP Harry van Bommel asked the Dutch minister of Foreign Affairs Verhagen to summon the Turkish ambassador in the Netherlands due to the arrests of Kurdish politicians in Turkey.

Basing itself on news reports of Rudaw, Bommel asks the Dutch minister Verhagen if he shares the opinion that the recent arrests of 80 Kurdish politicians and activists is a ‘ political attack’ and is unacceptable in a country that should be democratic.
