Geert Wilders called for a parliamentary inquiry into the political interference in his trial.
Wilders’ defense team obtained a notary statement from a former official of the Department of Justice in which the official declares overhearing a conversation between the then Secretary-General and then Minister of Justice Opstelten.
According to this remarkable statement Opstelten explicitly said that the public prosecutor should proceed to prosecute Wilders because ‘he is getting in our way’.
Dutch media reported about contact between Opstelten and the head of the public prosecutor about the case in 2014.
They also mention Opstelten was keen to see Wilders prosecuted.
Current Minister of Justice Ferd Grapperhaus still refuses to send documents detailing the meetings –which had been officially denied – to parliament.
The documents will remain secret, the minister told MPs.
