PRESS ‘FREEDOM’ IN THE NETHERLANDS
DUTCH JOURNALIST TERRORIZED, PROSECUTED, JAILED AND DRIVEN INTO EXILE BY DUTCH GOVERNMENT
MICHA KAT WAS A MEMBER OF THE INTERNET-TEAM OF MURDERED FILM MAKER THEO VAN GOGH
Dutch journalist Micha Kat has been summoned to appear in court on 13 May, for an appeal in one of a dozen criminal cases the Dutch government has launched against him. It would seem Kat is the worst criminal in Dutch history. But he has not killed anyone, nor did he rape, steal or plunder. The only thing he did was write, as journalists usually do. He wrote about criminal judges, pedophiles in the judiciary and the government, about fake trials and kangaroo courts, in short, about the unbelievable corruption of the Dutch judiciary. Everything Kat wrote has turned out to be the truth, but one of those kangaroo courts is now set to silence this journalist for good. Due to the unprecedented state terror campaign against him (30-odd arrests, imprisonment without trial, attempts to subject him to forced psychiatric treatment) Kat had to go into exile and is now living in Ireland.
Kat once belonged to the team of journalists assembled by Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh, who ran the first freethinker website in the country. In 2004, Van Gogh was assassinated, allegedly by a “lone wolf” terrorist, but in fact the Dutch government was behind the murder. This is as certain as the involvement of the US government in 9-11. As a matter of fact, the entire Van Gogh team has now been wiped out, just because their views and their unquestioned popularity were not to the liking of the government.
The following journalists and writers (all of them opinion leaders) were eliminated after Van Gogh:
Ayaan Hirsi Ali was compelled to leave the Dutch parliament and the country after a covert slandering-campaign by the Dutch government (1 September 2006).
Gregorius Nekschot, noted for his biting cartoons, was arrested by a ten-man SWAT team. Nekschot never published again. (13 May, 2008)
Pamela Hemelrijk (influential freethinker with a weekly column in the mass-circulation Metro newspaper) was found dead in her home (28 September, 2009)
Micha Kat, specialized reporter on legal and judicial matters and running a popular alternative news site, arrested and jailed without trial (25 April, 2012).
Professor Hans Jansen, Member of the European Parliament and the only islam specialist with a critical stance, found dead in his home. (5 May, 2015).
Ebru Umar, influential journalist of Turkish descent, arrested while on holiday in Turkey, for publishing criticism of president Erdogan in the Netherlands (23 April, 2016)
As you can see, journalists in the Netherlands who are critical of the government, get arrested, jailed, are lifted from their beds by SWAT teams, forced out of the country, found dead in their homes, or murdered in broad daylight by a “lone wolf.”
Mind you, the Dutch government lectures many foreign governments and political leaders about press freedom. President Putin is criticized and so is Erdogan. The list of those who violate the freedom of the press (in Dutch government eyes, of course) is quite a long one, actually.
There is just one word to describe the Dutch government: hypocrites.
All right, two words: bloody hypocrites
