Board of Deputies President Marie van der Zyl has reacted to comments made by Turkish President Erdogan about businessman George Soros.

Marie said: “We are very concerned about the comments made by Turkish President Erdogan who called George Soros an ‘infamous Hungarian Jew’ and accused him of being behind the historic protests in Turkey in 2013. Accusing a wealthy Jewish philanthropist of exercising global influence and fomenting discord draws on antisemitic conspiracy theories and tropes. We are well aware where these stereotypes can lead.”
