Jihad suspect threatened attack on Wilders
by Janene Van Jaarsveldt
Suspected jihadist Mohamed A. discussed plans for an attack on PVV leader Geert Wilders with others. This was revealed during the criminal case against the 22 year old man from Delft, who is on trial for the preparation of a robbery and possession of three firearms.
NOS reports that A. refused to respond to questions about the intercepted conversations regarding an attack on Wilders. He kept repeating that he invokes his right to remain silent, but he previously stated that the conversations were "tough talk" and "James Bond stories". These conversations took place in A.'s mother's car, in which the police had placed listening devices.
A. was arrested last year after an undercover police operation. At the request of an undercover agent A. purchased three firearms to commit a robbery. This operation was set up after the General Intelligence and Security Service (AIVD) tipped the police that A. was trying to get money together to finance the international jihad.
