Wilders: Multiple offenders must be punished
Perpetrators of multiple crimes should face a punishment fitting to all crimes together, Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders told de Volkskrant newspaper Thursday. According to Wilders, a rapist who has struck ten times should face the punishment for rape ten times over.
In current Dutch law, the various penalties for multiple offenses are not added together. However, the Freedom Party believes that the action should be implemented in certain cases, for example in that of Robert M. who is accused in Amsterdam of abusing 85 children.
The Freedom Party has previously advocated for life sentences for criminals charged with three serious violent crimes.
