A Dutch man was arrested in front of D66 leader Sigrid Kaag’s house for holding a torch and harassing the minister.
The man knocked on her door repeatedly and was shouting conspiracies. And because we’re in the age of smartphones and social media, he (of course) live-streamed the whole thing, reports the NOS. 🙄
The same individual was also arrested a month before at Health Minister Hugo de Jonge’s house. Extra security has been arranged since the end of December.
The Hague police are currently investigating the incident and a report has been filed.
And get this: the torch guy was discovered because people recognised him on his live stream and he was arrested almost immediately. 🤣
Other MPs are pissed
“Intimidating scum,” said D66 leader Rob Jetten, “How far should we let it go in the Netherlands.”
Another D66 member, Jan Paternotte, thinks that it’s “totally idiotic and enormously threatening. Whoever touches our ministers affects our democracy.”
Even the leader of the BoerBurgerBeweging (Farmer-Citizen Movement) wrote, “What sick minds to visit Sigrid Kaag and her family in this way.”
