Yesim Candan will file a report after the front door of her Amsterdam home was forced on Thursday, the RTL columnist told NU.nl on Sunday.
Candan has openly expressed support for author Lale Gül since the beginning of March, after she received negative reactions to her book about her Orthodox Islamic childhood.
The RTL columnist informs NU.nl that she has no concrete indications that this support and the forced front door are related. She also has no potential culprit in the picture.
According to Candan, no items were taken. That is why the columnist assumes an attempt at intimidation.
Candan says he has received threats before. Among other things, she says she received negative responses to an article in which she spoke about a lack of hygiene among the native Dutch. Candan says that the police have not done anything with previous reports of threats in connection with her work.
“It’s not like I’m going to sit in a corner and cry,” says Candan. She says she will not be deterred by what she thinks are attempts at intimidation. “This shows that as a columnist you have to have balls. It only motivates me more: because of this latest incident I came up with ten topics to write about.”
