763) 'Enacting the So-called Genocide Law presented to the Dutch Parliament is Difficult'

Enacting the proposed law presented to the Dutch Parliament which criminalizes denial of the so-called Armenian genocide� is decidedly difficult.

Turkish origin Dutch parliamentarian, Fadime Orgu, considers that legislative proposal that upset Turks in the Netherlands will be delayed in the commission.

Orgu said the Armenian lobby seeking the support of the public opinion in various countries now tries to stir the Netherlands, “the country of tolerance�, and Turks in the Netherlands will not allow this to happen.

Liberal Party member Orgu pointed out the groundless and pointless draft was proposed by only three members of the Christian Union (CU) party at the 150-seat Dutch parliament and the proposal will be discussed first in the concerned commission.

Turkish Deputy said: “We will deal with the matter with our friends within and outside the party. We need to be calm, strategic and diplomatic. A huge responsibility has been entrusted to Turkish civil institutions, businessmen and the public.

If we strengthen our lobby, we can stop the draft in its initial stage.� Orgu said it will be very difficult to pass the draft even if it passes the commission.
