Turkey’s Interior Minister Suleyman Soylu has said during a pre-election speech on Monday that tourists in Turkey resorts towns like Antalya, Mugla and Bodrum would be detained at airports if they are suspected of “terror” ties.

Speaking to a Sakarya crowd, Soylu said it is not acceptable for Turkey to allow those who take part in “betrayal against Turkey” abroad spend their holidays in Turkey.

The minister was referring to those who are suspected of having attended meetings by the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in European countries.

Turkey is known to abuse broadened terrorism charges to jail opposition of all backgrounds in the recent years.
