Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:
The former MEP Daniël van der Stoep gets two months in prison for trying to seduce underage girls into sex. He was also sentenced to three months suspended prison sentence and a community service order of 240 hours.
Van der Stoep was member of the European parliament for the PVV. He quit that party after he caused a traffic accident while intoxicated. He tried to seduce three girls sexually via WhatsApp and Facebook. They were between 15 and 17 years.
One of the minor girls is the daughter of a former employee of Van der Stoep. He offered the teenagers hundreds of euros, and gifts and cocaine. He asked them to send photos or to visit him.
He invited the girls inter alia to come and stay at his home and let them frequently notice that he found them sexy and attractive. In the Internet chat he pressured the girls to tell nothing about it to their families and friends. He threatened that the girls would not get money anymore, if the matter would come to light.
The Hague court blames him for using the age difference, his status as an MEP and his large salary. The three girls did not accept the sexual requests; before sexual intercourse happened the chat conversations were discovered and the matter became known.
