Minister of Justice: The Glorification of Violence is not Punishable

 Ivo Opstelten (VVD), Minister of Justice and Security does not want to make the glorification of violence separately punishable. He said that there is freedom of expression in the Netherlands.  Opstelten added that there should be strong actions against those who promote hatred, anti-Semitism and those who call to support violence. The law already provides opportunities for that. [Comment: In practice little is done]
