Freedom Party Opposes Appointment to Supreme Court

Louis Bontes, a Parliamentarian from the Freedom Party (PVV), has called the proposed appointment of Law Professor Ybo Buruma to the Supreme Court “scandalous.” Bontes said that Buruma is a far too political person who has compared PVV Leader Wilders to the Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. Bontes said “Buruma states something and is rewarded. Wilders states something and is prosecuted.” The PVV has asked for an individualized vote in Parliament on the proposed appointment, which is highly unusual.
