The police and public prosecution department are to launch an investigation into radical Islamic fringe group Sharia4Holland, Nos television reports.
The probe has been prompted by statements made by one of the organisation’s members on Dam square in Amsterdam on Friday, during an improvised press conference.
‘This government is exploiting you in the name of the European Union to finance the war against Muslims,’ one speaker is quoted as saying, after first pointing out the Dam is surrounded by prostitution, gambling and ‘the murderers of the cosmetics industry.’
He also described Geert Wilders as a dog of the Romans and warned him to learn from the example of Theo van Gogh. Van Gogh was murdered by a radical Muslim in 2004.
According to research by Radio Netherlands the organisation has just a handful of members in Holland.
