And why was Outmar or Othman Ben A. in the Dutch secret service in the first place? Because no one thought it was necessary or important to query him about his attachment to Islamic Sharia and other elements of Islam that are incompatible with Dutch law as it stands today. To have done so would no doubt have been “racist.” From AP, :
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands “” A translator at the Dutch secret service arrested in October for allegedly leaking classified information may have had links to suspected terrorists arrested in connection with filmmaker Theo van Gogh’s murder, a spokesman for the National Prosecutor’s office said Wednesday.
Separately, the Dutch Justice Ministry has deported one of 12 terrorism suspects tried last year in the Netherlands on charges of having recruited young Dutch Muslims for jihad, or Islamic holy war, immigration spokesman Martin Bruinsma said Wednesday.
Dutch media identified the 34-year-old translator suspected of links to Van Gogh’s killers as Outmar Ben A. or Othman Ben A. But National Prosecutor’s office spokesman Wim de Bruin said he could not confirm the name.
In a letter to parliament last week, Interior Minister Johan Remkes said one of the suspects in the leak case who allegedly received secret information stayed at the same address as Mohammed Bouyeri, Van Gogh’s alleged killer.
Remkes said Friday that it was not clear whether Bouyeri himself may have obtained secret information.
