Belgian far-right politician spreads COVID-19

This 7 September 2018 Dutch language video with English subtitles from Belgium says about itself:

The two faces of Schild & Vrienden: right-wing movement includes secret group full of racism, sexism and weapons.

They are neat and articulate, the members of the right-wing radical movement Schild & Vrienden. Founder Dries Van Langenhove is the representative of that. Our reporting magazine “Pano” followed him since the beginning of this year, but the editors also managed to infiltrate their secret chat groups. More than 65,000 messages could be viewed. It looks completely different: explicit racism, sexism and photos with weapons are no exception. How dangerous is the Schild & Vrienden movement really?

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

The police in Ghent has arrested [extreme right party] Vlaams Belang MP Dries Van Langenhove (27) during a prohibited party breaking anti-COVID-19 rules. This is reported by the Belgian daily Het Nieuwsblad. The party is said to have taken place on Thursday evening, with twelve present. …

According to the newspaper, Van Langenhove will be fined 250 euros.

On 14 March 2020, Van Langenhove on Twitter had denounced Belgians having parties breaking anti-COVID-19 rules.

Here, a sarcastic tweet on Van Langenhove’s recent arrest.
