26 October 2006

THE HAGUE – Murderers must be put in the cell for a minimum of twenty years, an thieves for at least three months.

With the setting-up of minimum sentences, among others, the Party for the Freedom (PVV) of Geert Wilders wants to reduce crime by half over the coming four years.

That stands in a plan with fifteen points for the treatment of crime that the PVV presented on Thursday.

Furthermore the party wants that the penalty between an attempt to commit a crime and in the actual committing of an indictable offence no distinction will be made.

This means that a suspect who only tried to commit a murder will receive just as high of a sentence as a murderer.
