Neo-nazi guilty of inciting hatred and discrimination

Tuesday 26 February 2013

The chairman of Dutch neo-nazi party Nederlandse Volks-Unie has been given 40 hours community service and a two-week suspended jail sentence for his role in an anti-foreigner demonstration in 2011.

The court in Almelo said Constant Kusters and three others were guilty of insulting foreigners and discrimination at the rally in the southern city of Enschede.

During the demonstration they chanted 'the Netherlands for the Dutch, own people first' and carried White Power flags.

Appeal

The three others were fined €500 and given 30-hour community services. Kusters is to appeal against his sentence.

The demonstration in May 2011 ended in a fight with 250 anti-racist protestors.

The NVU was founded in 1971 and is considered the only 'classic extreme right-wing party' left in the Netherlands, the NRC said.

Then they are not looking hard enough.
