Dutch EU Parliamentarian On Turkish Extremists’ Hit List

The name of Joost Lagendijk (Green Left Party), a Dutch EU parliamentarian, has been found on the hit list of the extreme nationalist Turkish group Ergenekon. In 2005 a nationalist lawyer had brought a complaint against Lagendijk claiming that he had insulted Turkey. This was a punishable offense, but the attorney-general’s office decided not to prosecute.
