Cabinet Puts Mayors on Alert Regarding Upcoming Quran Film

It has now become known that, at the end of November, the Dutch government sent a letter to all mayors asking them to be especially alert regarding the upcoming Quran film by Geert Wilders, leader of the Freedom Party (PVV). The letter says that the film and the publicity surrounding it might cause unrest and tension among ethnic groups. Mayors can get advice from the Ministry of the Interior on how to prepare for this type of development.
