PVV parliamentarian arrested for head butt
Thursday 30 September 2010
An MP for the anti-Islam PVV spent Wednesday night in a police cell after being involved in a fracas in the centre of The Hague, news agency ANP reports.
Marcial Hernandez, elected to parliament in June, is a former army officer. He was arrested after reportedly giving someone – said to be a civil servant from the economic affairs department, a head butt and was released on Thursday morning.
The other man is pressing charges, ANP said.
According to ANP, Hernandez was in the Kosovo and Afghanistan wars (as a major). It looks like this MP of this xenophobic party, the party of Geert Wilders, wants to bring the violence of those bloody wars to the Netherlands.
