Killer of Pim Fortuyn to be released under strict conditions on May 2
The man who shot dead politician Pim Fortuyn dead in a car park 12 years ago is to be released a few days before the anniversary of the killing.
Volkert van der Graaf's freedom will be subject to strict conditions, including a ban on contacting Fortuyn's relatives, talking to the media or visiting the scene of the crime. The last restriction will be enforced by satellite tracking.
The 44-year-old is eligible for early release after serving two-thirds of an 18-year sentence for murdering Fortuyn on May 6, 2002, at the media centre in Hilversum.
