Reuters news agency reports today that Dutch citizens in Turkey are being prevented from leaving the country. This is yet another chapter in Turkey’s hard line approach to a dispute with the Dutch government. Diplomatic ties were strained in March when the Netherlands prevented President Tayyip Erdogan’s government ministers from campaigning in their country. Turkish President Erdogan is seeking a referendum to increase his powers. The Turkish president resorted to name calling and referred to the Dutch government as German National Socialist (Nazi) remnants.
