Police chief apologized to Turks for racist statements in his organization in the Netherlands

Westerbeke, who was a guest on a program on the Rotterdam Rijnmond TV channel, said that he noticed that confidence in the Rotterdam police was decreasing.

Stating that police officers affiliated with the Rotterdam organization, who made “racist speeches” in social media groups, were properly punished, Westerbeke said, “I already sincerely and sincerely apologize to Hümeyra’s family and the whole Turkish community living in the Netherlands. I want to say this to the family again personally. I apologize to the Turkish community because I learned that this incident had a huge impact on the Turks, “he said.

In addition, Westerbeke stated that the police apologized to everyone in the social media group who were disturbed by their racist and discriminatory statements against minorities, immigrants and Africans in the country, “The police involved in the incident also regret and apologize. he spoke.

On the other hand, it was reported that Hümeyra E’s family wanted the police officers who used racist statements to be dismissed from their duties.

Reports in local media reported that a Moroccan-born police working in the Rotterdam police department informed the higher authorities about racist statements and was declared a traitor and bullied by his colleagues.

Hümeyra E, who was studying at Rotterdam Designcollege, was killed by her ex-boyfriend while returning from school on December 16, 2018.

Hümeyra E complained to the police on the grounds that she was threatened, but her complaints were not taken into consideration.

On March 25, it was reflected in the media that the Dutch police used the phrase “One more Turk was reduced” in the correspondence they made in social media groups about the death of Hümeyra E.

Westerbeke said that the statement used on Hümeyra E’s death should be condemned and was “insulting”, noting that the police were condemned and the investigation launched against them was continuing.
