Dutch MPs demand answers on Paris Attacks terrorists' trip to Amsterdam
A majority in parliament supports the PVV's demand for a debate on reports that two terrorists traveled to Amsterdam on the day of the terrorist attacks in Paris last year. They want Minister Ard van der Steur of Security and Justice to answer their questions at the earliest convenience, NOS reports.
"How is it possible that they could leave our country again without being arrested?" PVV leader Geert Wilders wants to know. "Are there other unknown cells in the Netherlands?"
His demand for a debate is supported by the VVD, PvdA, CDA, SP, D66, SGP, 50Plus and parliamentarians Tunahan Kuzu and Ronald van Vliet.
This is in response to reports by French newspaper Le Monde on Thursday that terrorism suspects Sofiane Ayari and Osama Krayem traveled to the Netherlands on November 13th, 2015. They got into a Euroline bus in Brussels with one way tickets to the Netherlands. They also booked a hotel room in Amsterdam. Eventually they returned to Brussels, with seemingly nothing done in the Netherlands. The reason for this is unknown.
The two were eventually arrested and are still in custody.
