Extreme Animal Rightists being Investigated as Terrorists and Organized Criminals

The Dutch attorney-general’s office feels that extreme animal rightists are an increasing danger to Dutch society, having become more violent in recent years. They are now dealt with by the same unit as terrorists and members of organized crime groups. Most of their activities consist of destruction, arson, intimidation and freeing animals from breeding farms. The general intelligence service (AIVD) says that extreme animal rightists use the internet to access the personal data of their targets. The attorney-general’s office has admitted that it has not been successful in penetrating the circles of the extreme animal rightists.
