From the Dutch Expatica, with thanks to Susan:
AMSTERDAM – The European Parliament (EP) has banned the showing of Theo van Gogh’s film ‘Submission’ following a refusal by the murdered filmmaker’s production company to allow its screening.
Legal concerns persuaded the EP on Wednesday to ban the screening after Column Produkties told the parliament on Tuesday that because of security concerns, it would not allow the film to be shown….
The film, made with Dutch MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali, criticises Islam and the Koran for allegedly sanctioning domestic violence against Muslim women.
Mario Borghezio, an MEP for the Italian right-wing Lega Nord party, planned to show the 10-minute film at the EP as a tribute to Van Gogh.
Borghezio has an unauthorised copy of the film and said the EP will be a “fitting response to the silence surrounding ‘Submission’ and Theo van Gogh’s sacrifice”…
Indeed, it would have been.
