    Belgium will not tolerate a Turkish referendum on the Death Penalty on its territory

    Belgium does not intend to allow Turks in Belgium to take part in a possible Turkish referendum on reinstating the Death Penalty.

    “I won’t tolerate it”, Prime Minister Charles Michel said when asked by the RTBF on Saturday. “I think it’s unacceptable”.

    Mr Michel said Belgium will look into the “judicial possibilities” available to stop the referendum happening on Belgian soil.

    The Flemish parties of the Federal majority, the N-VA, CD&V and Open Vld, already said they didn’t want Turks in Belgium to take part in the referendum.

    The Turkish President recently announced his intention to hold a referendum on reinstating the Death Penalty in Turkey.
