The Turkish customs authority has seized 23 trucks from the world renowned, Cirque du Soleil, following a court ruling on Tuesday.
The ruling related to financial losses accrued due to a number of cancelled performances during the failed coup attempt on 15 July.
The Montreal-based Cirque had canceled some 40 shows during EXPO 2016 – an international horticultural exposition in Antalya – due to Turkey's state of emergency. The EXPO 2016 said that it lost more than $5 million as a result.
Harun Guzel, the Cultural Programs Editor for EXPO 2016 said Cirque du Soleil unfairly canceled the contract.
