I put this up so that you will remember that there was a plot to destroy the Dutch Parliament and the charming Schiphol Airport. One of these days such plots will succeed somewhere, and people will say, “We didn’t know there was a threat!”
From Expatica, with thanks to Anthony:
AMSTERDAM “” An 18-year-old man, who is accused of planning terror attacks on the Dutch Parliament and Schiphol Airport, will face trial on 24 February next year.
A pre-trial hearing was held on Tuesday in Rotterdam Court and the court penciled in two days for Samir A.’s trial, starting on 24 February.
The public prosecutor accuses A. of planning attacks on the parliament in The Hague, Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam, the nuclear reactor Borssele, the Defence Ministry, and the Leidschendam offices of the Dutch security service AIVD.
He was arrested in June on suspicion of involvement in a supermarket robbery. A search of his house allegedly uncovered blueprints of the buildings. The documents also allegedly had notes regarding security and the possible necessity of a car.
The Dutch government issued a terror alert on 9 July as a result of A.’s arrest. Security was tightened at key Dutch installations and the alert has not yet been rescinded.
