Pim Fortuyn's killer to be released from jail on May 2, minister says
Volkert van der Graaf, jailed for 18 years in 2003 for the murder of populist politician Pim Fortuyn, will get early release from prison on May 2, junior justice minister Fred Teeven confirmed on Wednesday.
Van der Graaf will then have served two-thirds of his sentence without incident and is entitled to leave jail.
The public prosecution department says there is no reason to delay his release and that he is not suffering from any psychiatric issues. Nor is he likely to reoffend.
