Turkey blames Dutch Gülen backers for stimulating diplomatic row
Dutch Turks who support the Gülen movement feel under attack because they are being blamed in the Turkish media for stimulating the diplomatic row between Turkey and the Netherlands, Trouw said on Wednesday.
The photographs of several known Gülen sympathisers have been printed in the Turkish government daily Sabah, the paper said. Ankara blames the movement for last year's failed coup.
For example, the paper lists Rotterdam city councillor Turan Yazir (CDA) as the 'spiritual leader' of the movement in the Netherlands. Other prominent CDA politicians are also being outed, as is Mehmet Cerit, who edits local news service Zaman Vandaag.
