AMSTERDAM — The Islamic man arrested for the murder of Theo van Gogh last year briefly held his younger sister captive in 2001 because she allegedly brought dishonour to the family.

Mohammed B.'s sister was having a relationship with a Moroccan man without the family's knowledge, public broadcaster KRO will report on Wednesday night.

An Amsterdam police spokesman confirmed B. had refused to allow the girl to leave the family's Amsterdam West home. The spokesperson declined to provide further details.

The kidnapping took place shortly after B. served time in jail for a violent offence.

The girl alerted police to her captivity and two officers visited the family home to seek a resolution to the dispute.
The situation blew over when the friend of the sister officially introduced himself to the family.

Mohammed B. was arrested shortly after the 2 November murder of van Gogh in Amsterdam. The Dutch-Moroccan 27-year-old has confessed to the killing.
