Parliamentarian takes Minister to Court The parliamentarian Thierry Baudet, the leader of the Forum for Democracy (FvD) party has taken Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Kajsa Ollongren to court. Ollongren of the center left D66 party has called Baudet and his party a bigger danger for Dutch core values than PVV leader Geert Wilders. Theo Hiddema, the other parliamentarian of the FvD and Baudet’s lawyer said that Ollongren’s accusation of racism could inspire ‘Volkertjes’ to action. He referred to the left winger Volkert van der Graaf who murdered politician Pim Foruyn in 2002. www.elsevierweekblad.nl/nederland/achtergrond/2018/02/hiddema-verdedigt-aangifte-ollongren-geeft-volkertjes-vrijbrief-582749/
