Dutch ex-Geert Wilders acolyte suspected of paedophilia

Ex-PVV politician Daniël van der Stoep

Politician from Pijnacker suspected of grooming underage girls

Wednesday 11 November 2015, 16:19

Pijnacker – The justice department suspects former MEP Daniël van der Stoep (35) from Pijnacker of attempts to induce underage girls into having sex with him. A spokeswoman for the public prosecutor confirmed this on Wednesday to the ANP news agency.

The politician, born and bred in Pijnacker, is said to have tried this with at least three girls by promising them gifts. Van der Stoep is said to have promised the girls, inter alia, money and cocaine and to have abused his status, so write national media. This happened in the years 2012 until the beginning of 2014. The alleged victims in the early attempts were only fifteen or sixteen years [or fourteen years] old. Van der Stoep has to appear in court on November 24.

Van der Stoep was from July 2009 to July 2014 for two periods in the European Parliament. First for the PVV [of Geert Wilders], where he gave up his seat after he caused a traffic accident under the influence of liquor, then from December 2011 on as an independent member.

While busy with his paedophile grooming, Daniël van der Stoep on Facebook hypocritically attacked his European Parliament (Green party) colleague Daniel Cohn-Bendit as a ‘piece of shit’ for paedophilia.

Europe just voted to drop criminal charges against Edward Snowden and offer him asylum

Posted 17 hours ago by Bethan McKernan

The European Parliament voted on Thursday to drop all criminal charges against Edward Snowden and offer him asylum and protection from rendition from third parties.

MEPs voted 285 – 281 to recognise the NSA whistleblower’s status as a “human rights defender” and asked member states to grant him protection from extradition to the US, where he is wanted under several Espionage Act charges.

In the resolution that was passed, MEPs said “too little has been done to safeguard citizens’ fundamental rights following revelations of electronic mass surveillance” the whistleblower alerted the world to after exposing the extent of the National Security Agency’s spying programmes in 2013.

The EU Commission is also being urged to ensure that all data transfers to the US are subject to an “effective level of protection” and examine concerns over surveillance laws in several EU countries, such as reported co-operation by Germany intelligence agency BND with the NSA.

It is up to individual member states to implement the resolution. …

In 2014 both independent and White House-funded studies analysed hundreds of terror cases and concluded that the NSA collection of phone records had had no discernible impact in foiling terror plots.

On Thursday, the European Parliament narrowly voted a nonbinding resolution calling on European Union (EU) member states to offer “protection” to Edward Snowden: here.

A series of declassified National Security Agency (NSA) documents have revealed that the government’s program of bulk metadata collection of the population’s internet communications, known as STELLARWIND, has continued despite claims by the Obama administration to have ended the program in 2011, prior to information of its existence being leaked by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden: here.

Persecuted Saudi blogger wins human rights prize

10 Years in Jail & 1,000 Lashes: In Conversation with Ensaf Haidar

18 August 2015

In June 2012, the creator of the Free Saudi Liberals blog Raif Badawi was accused of apostasy and insulting Islam, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison and 1 000 lashes by the General Court of Jeddah.

Vice meets with Badawi‘s wife, Ensaf Haidar, who sought refuge in Sherbrooke QC with her 3 children in 2013. They discuss the message her husband was trying to get across in his writings, … and the life she left behind in Saudi Arabia.

From the BBC in Britain today:

Saudi blogger Raif Badawi awarded Sakharov human rights prize

Saudi blogger Raif Badawi, whose flogging sentence caused an outcry, has been awarded the European Parliament’s Sakharov human rights prize.

Parliament President Martin Schulz urged Saudi King Salman “to free him, so he can accept the prize”.

Mr Badawi was sentenced to 10 years in jail and 1,000 lashes in Saudi Arabia for “insulting Islam”.

Another example of the Saudi regime using religious pretexts to silence political criticism of itself.

Earlier this month he also won the Pen Pinter Prize for championing free speech.

The Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought has been awarded by the European Parliament since 1988 to individuals or organisations for their contribution to the fight for human rights and democracy.

It is named after the Soviet scientist and dissident Andrei Sakharov.

Flogging postponed

Mr Badawi, author of the website Free Saudi Liberals, was convicted of insulting Islam in 2012 and fined £175,000.

He received the first 50 lashes of his sentence in January, but subsequent floggings have been postponed.

In June, Saudi Arabia’s Supreme Court upheld the verdict despite a foreign outcry.

“This man, who is an extremely good man, an exemplary man, has had imposed on him one of the most gruesome penalties,” Mr Schulz told a packed European Parliament assembly in Strasbourg, France.

“I call on the Saudi king to immediately free him. Relations depend on human rights being respected by our partners… they are not only not being respected but are being trodden underfoot.” …

Mr Badawi’s wife Ensaf Haidar, now living [in] Canada with their children, said the award was a “message of hope and courage”.

“I thank the European Parliament,” she told AFP news agency.

Mr Badawi was one of three nominees for this year’s prize along with assassinated Russian opposition leader Boris Nemtsov and the Venezuelan opposition movement Mesa de la Unidad Democratica.

Fortunately, at least this year the prize goes to a genuine human rights fighter. To someone who is up against dictatorial allies of the Pentagon, NATO and the European Union. If one of the two other candidates would have won, then it would have been more of a geopolitical move to embarrass governments with which the Pentagon, NATO and the European Union have economic and/or strategic issues. As sometimes happened with the Sakharov Prize before.

Previous winners include Nelson Mandela, Myanmar activist Aung San Suu Kyi and Pakistani education campaigner Malala Yousafzai.

Two winners who deserved a human rights prize without any doubt: Nelson Mandela and Malala Yousafzai. And one winner who half-deserved it: Ms Aung San Suu Kyi did stand up to the military regime in her country; but is silent on the state terrorism against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar (Burma).

European parliament fines far-right members for nazi salutes

Too far: Polish MEP gives Nazi salute, shouts fascist slogan in EU parliament

10 July 2015

The EU parliament is certainly a place for free debate, but a recent statement by an MEP has raised doubts over how far lawmakers can go in their comments.

Legislator Janusz Korwin-Mikke used a Nazi Germany salute to protest against a German-led motion to introduce travel tickets valid all over the EU.

Poland’s Foreign Minister has since issued an apology, saying he was ashamed by the incident.

Translated from NOS TV in the Netherlands:

Nazi Salute costs MEPs 3000 euros

Today, 13:21

A Polish and an Italian MEP have been fined and suspended because they brought the Nazi salute in July in the European Parliament. That happened during a debate on European transportation.

Janusz Korwin-Mikke from Poland and the Italian Gianluca Buananno are controversial. The 73-year-old Korwin-Mikke called refugees recently human waste. He also claimed that women are too stupid to play chess.

Buonanno wore during a visit by the German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the European Parliament a mask of her face. …

The president of the European Parliament Schultz is fed up with the behaviour of the two, and gave them a fine of 3,000 euros for bringing the Nazi salute. They have been suspended for ten days.

Translated from the Italian wikipedia entry about Gianluca Buonanno, member of the European parliament for the racist Lega Nord party; formerly a member of the neo-fascist Mussolini fans of the MSI party:

On 19 September 2014, during the radio program La Zanzara, he was asked about same-sex unions. He proposed to “blacklist homosexual couples” and give them bananas:

“In Borgosesia [where he lives] there will be a dozen gays, but maybe they have increased. Maybe it would be best if I would blacklist them. Since they want to advertise their love, they have to be registered. If I were asked to celebrate homosexual marriage in the municipality where I would be the mayor, then I would say that it is better that you do a forced drugging cure. At best, offer gays bananas. Or a salad or a pansy.”
