Geet Wilder, widely expected to win the election this year for Prime Minister in the Netherlands, has been under 24 hour secret service protection for over 10 years due to death threats by Islamic radicals. There has been a recent arrest by Dutch authorities of a Moroccan Muslim secret service agent in light of new evidence that he has been caught leaking Geert Wilder’s location to jihadist groups, endangering his life in the process. He runs an anti-Islamic platform that includes the closing of muslim houses of worship, mosques, and creating immigration bans from muslim majority countries that are known for their acts of terror. The identity of the apprehended suspect has not been confirmed, but he is definitely of ‘Moroccan’ background.
A Dutch secret service agent who was part of the team responsible for protecting Geert Wilders, the frontrunner in next month’s election, has been suspended on suspicion of leaking details to a criminal organization, the secret service said on Wednesday. Wilders, who campaigns on an anti-Islam platform that includes closing mosques and banning immigration from Muslim countries that has led to the protection, condemned the alleged breach, saying he cannot function without adequate security. Dutch newspapers De Telegraaf and NRC Handelsblad and the country’s national broadcaster NOS identified the suspect as an experienced officer in his mid-30s, using his first name and last initial. Secret Service chief Erik Akerboom said he could not confirm the man’s identity but confirmed media reports he has a “Moroccan background”. Akerboom told Business News Radio that “as far as we know” Wilders’ safety had not been jeopardized
