PVV will not reveal donors’ identities if law is passed, says MP

If draft legislation requiring political parties to publish a list of donations becomes law, the PVV will still refuse to do so, MP Hero Brinkman said during a debate on the plans on Wednesday evening, the Telegraaf reports.

The legislation includes a €25,000 fine for parties which do not come clean on donations of over €4,500. Brinkman regards the draft law as ‘anti-PVV’ legislation because the party wants to protect the identity of its supporters.
The PVV is thought to generate significant funding from Israeli and far-right supporters in the US.
Because the PVV has no members, it does not receive government subsidies to run the campaigning side of its operation and relies instead on donations. The parliamentary party is fully funded by the state.
