AMSTERDAM — The populist LPF and the Liberal VVD parties have demanded that Interior Minister Johan Remkes ban the fundamentalist Islamic movement HUT, claiming it is a threat to the Dutch legal system.

The "Liberation Party" HUT — which intends to hold a congress in Rotterdam on 6 March — has already been banned in Germany after judges ruled that it was anti-Semitic and against the German Constitution.

HUT wanted to hold its congress in the Feyenoord football stadium Kuip, but stadium chiefs turned down the request. It has since been decidedthat meetings of all extreme politically-oriented groups will be blocked from using the stadium.

Furthermore, both the LPF and VVD have demanded a debate about banning Islamic extremist parties, public news service NOS reported on Monday.
