turkey accuses dutch of srebrenica massacre

Turkey's political spat with the Netherlands deepened today after President Recep Erdogan accused the Dutch of the worst mass killing in Europe since World War II."We know the Netherlands and the Dutch from the Srebrenica massacre. We know how rotten their character is from their massacre of 8,000 Bosnians there," he said in a televised speech.His comments follow the news that diplomatic relations between the two countries had been suspended, with Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Numan Kurtulmus saying the Dutch ambassador would be barred from returning to Ankara.The two Nato allies are "now locked in an unprecedented diplomatic crisis," says the BBC, just a day before voters in the Netherlands go to the polls "for a general election dominated by concerns about immigration and Islamic radica

court rules against dutch expats with missing ballot papers

Judges in The Hague have rejected a plea from a number of Dutch expats to be given more time to submit their votes in the general election.By law, ballot papers which have been sent abroad must be returned by March 15, the date of the national vote. But around 1,000 of the 78,000 Dutch expats who registered to vote had not received their papers with a week to go.Eelco Keij, a D66 parliamentary hopeful who has been campaigning on behalf of Dutch expats, says the state has been negligent in not sending voting papers out six weeks prior to the vote.‘A serious number of Dutch voters abroad are being robbed of their voting rights,’ he said.The court will publish its full reasoning later.

dutch election: rutte's victory a 'stop to the wrong kind of populism’

Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte's VVD Party has won the most seats in parliamentary elections on Wednesday, overcoming a challenge from far-right politician Geert Wilders.

A gas drilling site. Photo: Graham DockeryThe Dutch export of natural gas was worth €8.2bn in 2016, 42% lower than in 2013, the national statistics office CBS reported on Thursday.The value of Dutch exports totalled €433bn last year. Nearly 2% of this was due to the sale of gas abroad, down from 4% in 2013. Demand for gas was 15% lower than it was three years ago because of the milder winter.The Dutch government imposed a production ceiling on gas production on the northern province of Groningen in 2014 because of the mounting earthquake risk. In 2013 Groningen gas production totalled 54 billion cubic metres, falling to 47 billion cubic metres in 2015.

dutch diplomatic row with turkey: what the dutch papers say

Turkish ministers were refused entry into the country this weekend to address political rallies in the run up to the Turkish referendum which will give more power to president Recep Tayyip Erdogan. The Dutch papers waver between praise and regret for the actions of the Dutch government.‘A violent collision between Turkish pride and Dutch determination’ the NRC calls the diplomatic row between Turkey and the Netherlands in its editorial.‘The motives for refusing the Turkish ministers were perhaps understandable enough but it was not a wise move. A refusal is an infringement of the right to free speech, which is exactly what Europe is laying at Turkey’s doorstep,’ the paper writes.Populists‘Where Germany chose to calm the waters by giving minister Cavosoglu a limited podium at the Turkish co

migrant children 'should use native language with dutch in school'

Children of new migrants and asylum seekers should be taught in their native languages as well as Dutch, according to new guidance to primary schools from the education ministry.The advice is a departure from the last 20 years in which immersive education in Dutch has been seen as the best way to integrate children from elsewhere.One of the authors, Maaike Hajer, said research had shown that migrant children feel more settled when they are able to use their native language in the classroom. ‘It is very important to build on that basis,’ she told NOS Radio 1 Journaal.Hajer said using other languages did not necessarily have a negative impact on children’s progress in Dutch. ‘They don’t have to stand in each other’s way; they can support each other,’ she said.She said one option was to enlis

dutch employers welcome eu decision on headscarves

Dutch employers groups VNO-NCW and MKB-Nederland have welcomed the European Court of Justice’s ruling stating employers can determine whether or not headcarves may be worn in the workplace, the Financieele Dagblad said on Wednesday.The European court ruled that headscarves may be banned if this is a part of a broader company ban on visible signs of political, philosophical or religious affiliation. The decision was triggered by charges of discrimination in Belgium and France.The Dutch employers groups said the ruling gave more clarity about what company executives must do if there are problems with employees about dress.But, they added, its members only rarely had problems about such matters. Both organisations said situations involving dress were mostly settled on the work floor in a disc
