Three boys have been given community service of 50 hours for posting threats against MP Geert Wilders on his website.
The boys, aged 12 and 13 at the time, visited Wilders’ website during a school anti-racism project and used the digital contact form to leave their messages, reports news agency ANP.
One text, inspired by rap rhythms, read: ‘Geert Wilders, we will take you to the cellar. Then I will hit you and you won’t see clearly any more’.
The public prosecution department had called for suspended juvenile detention sentences of up to two weeks.
