Wilders aide suspended over burqa "scum"
Geert Wilders' anti-Islam Freedom Party has suspended a parliamentary aide for describing a number of women dressed in burqas as "scum" in a clip he posted on the internet.
Sam van Rooy taped the women in a shopping centre in Scheveningen, near The Hague, and posted the video on YouTube. The footage has since been removed.
"This clip goes much too far", a PVV spokeswoman said. "It is regrettable that these women wear a burqa and we would like to see a ban on burqas, but these women are not scum. We deeply regret this incident."
