MPs also fiddle with Wiki entries

The Wikipedia entries of various MPs have been fiddled with using computers from parliamentary offices, reports Monday’s Trouw newspaper.

The MPs involved are Jan Marijnissen (Socialist Party leader), Krista van Velzen (SP), Marianne Thieme (founder of the animal rights party PvdD) and Boris van der Ham (centre-left D66),
In some entries, critical passages have been removed. In the description of Thieme, reference to her membership of the Seventh Day Adventists cult was scrapped.
The revelations follow news last week that princess Mabel changed her entry in the online encyclopaedia.
