Bilal L. convicted for making plans

Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Bilal L., a friend of Mohammed Bouyeri, the murderer of Theo van Gogh, was convicted to a 3 year prison sentence for making plans. Bilal had been convicted to 10 months in prison for making threats against right-wing Anti-Islam politician Geert Wilders. During his prison term he had been trying win recruits for Jihad under the inmates of his prison.

The latest conviction of Bilal was possible under new legislation introduced in 2004 under which terrorist intentions and not just terrorist acts are made punishable under the law. Bilal is the first to be convicted under this legislation. This law of course applies to all people in the Netherlands and means that all people can be tried and convicted for their intentions, once these intentions are proven.

Tyranny anyone?
