Our own Dutch Turkish State Secretary of Justice
This is Nebahat Albayrak, Turkish born, but she grew up and is educated in the Netherlands. And holds dual citizenship: Turkish and Dutch. At the age of 29 she was elected in the Dutch parliament. And since this year, she is Secretary of State (Junior Minister) of Justice at the age of 39. Her task is Immigration. And today she made a tough stance against asylum seekers, while her party, the Dutch labor party, was more mild.
I don't see her in a cat fight with another politician, like what we saw last week in Ankara...
She became the first Muslim ever in a Dutch government.
Regarding the Armenian issue, she declared that things happened, but urged for an independent investigation.
