A member of fringe Muslim group Shariah4Holland has been fined €750 and sentenced to a one-month suspended jail sentence for threatening Geert Wilders, leader of the anti-Islam PVV.
At an impromptu press conference on Dam square in Amsterdam in May, Ab Qasim, 29, likened Wilders to a Roman dog and warned him to learn the lesson of what happened to Theo van Gogh. Van Gogh was killed by an Islamic militant.
The public prosecution department had called for 150 hours community service and a month’s suspended sentence.
Sharia4Holland is said to have no more than a handful of members in the Netherlands.
