Pekela: Mayor Receives Death Threat

The Mayor of Pekela, Meindert Schollema (Labor) and two aldermen have received death threats. They are now being guarded carefully. The police announced this recently and said that these threats must be treated seriously. The police do not want to release any further information, so as not to hamper the investigation. They are particularly watching the activities of extreme rightists in the area. In the town of Scheemda recently the police terminated a meeting of 35 right wing extremists because the intelligence service AIVD had warned the mayor that it could get out of hand.
