The secretary general of the council of Europe has written to foreign minister Uri Rosenthal urging the Dutch government to ‘clarify its position’ regarding a website set up by Geert Wilders’ PVV to collect complaints about central and eastern European nationals.

While emphasising the right to freedom of expression, Thorbjørn Jagland’s letter says: ‘I am concerned because it is hosted by a political party which is linked to the governing coalition.’

Meanwhile, in Britain, 11 MPs from all sides of the political spectrum have signed a motion calling on the Dutch government to distance itself from the PVV website.

The motion notes that ‘the PVV supports the minority government of Mark Rutte, who has remained silent on the issue, and calls on the Dutch prime minister to disassociate the Dutch government from the PVV campaign and demand the website is discontinued’.
