CDA and VVD: Terror Law Must be More Stringent

The Christian Democrat Party (CDA) and the Liberal Party (VVD) are asking for a more stringent terrorist law in the Netherlands. This comes after The Hague court of appeals decided that the so-called Hofstadgroep – labeled as a terrorist organization – does not exist. One of the main suspects was sentenced to 15 years in prison as in the lower court. The punishment of the second one was reduced from 13 years in jail to 15 months. Five others who had been condemned in the lower court were released.,1
