Police seize computers in extreme-right search

29 May 2008

THE NETHERLANDS – Police have searched the house of an individual suspected of ties to the ‘Holland-hardcore’ website, one of the biggest extreme-right websites in The Netherlands.

During the search, which took place near The Hague, several computers were seized.

The Dutch Complaints Bureau for Discrimination on the Internet reported Holland-hardcore to the police after receiving many complaints about racist and discriminatory statements on the site. Most of these were directed at Muslims.

The Bureau hopes by its action to make it clear that such a site will not be tolerated in the Netherlands.
