MP for the PvdA in Amsterdam, Ahmed Marcouch, has filed a report against Mouna Jabrane. Marcouch says that the social worker and council member of The Greens party in the city said hateful things about gay people.
In 2013, more people with a psychiatric disorder have received euthanasia, according to minister Edith Schippers.
PvdA leader Diederik Samsom was quick with a response on a tweet of PVV leader Wilders.
On Tuesday afternoon, Wilders tweeted: ‘I will never get used to it. A Moroccan (Arib), this afternoon as House chairman with in front of her the Koran in the Dutch House.”
Samsom immediately responded: ‘Arib as chairman proves that the hatred of PVV will never overcome the power of this beautiful country, in which origin is irrelevant.’
