Wilders receives death threat from Greeks

18th June 2011, Comments 6 comments

Freedom Party leader Geert Wilders says he has received a death threat following his call to expel Greece from the eurozone and stop financial aid to the debt-stricken country.

MP Wilders confirmed the news to newspaper De Telegraaf, calling the threats “horrible”.

The anti-Islam politician, who is under 24-hour bodyguard protection, says he is going to report the threat to the police.

The death threat was made in a telephone call to the Dutch embassy in the Greek capital Athens. Mr Wilders says he has also received hate mail from disgruntled Greeks.

Last week, Mr Wilders took a huge drachma note to the Greek embassy in The Hague, calling on Athens to reintroduce their former national currency. cl

    Must be hell for Geert- bodygards, threats, him and his wife feeling alienated from one another because they only see each other once a week if lucky,and he can't sleep in the same place more than two nights in a row, He's ridiculed,insulted, called all kinds of names that don't describe him accurately at all,..and why do I get the impression his own country gives him a bad time too ? That's a pity, because he's got his country's comfort, welfare, safety and rights in mind in the way he thinks. He's right about Muslim immigrants too--he knows that for all the generosity and tolerance that's shown them it will be at Holland's expense. The Dutch should understand that.
