The Turkish minister has now been detained by Dutch police and is to be deported!
With mass rallies still ongoing at the consulate, the Dutch police asked Kaya to promptly leave the country for Germany, accompanied by a police convoy. "You must go back to the German border,” the police told the minister, as reported by NOS correspondent Robert Bas. However, the minister reportedly rejected the request, after police refused to let her address the protesters, NOS reported.

Actually, a German friend just explained this to me in detail.
Erdogan is coming up for a power referendum and he's sending his ministers to foreign countries so that those with dual citizenship can vote for Erdogan. He wants to stay in power so he needs all the help he can get, including from those who no longer live in Turkey. However, Germany and Holland do not want his strongman political rallies on their territory, and have denied ministers to speak there. The upcoming referendum will give Erdogan even more power if he wins, making him president for life.
