OM looks at Derksen’s comment about ‘liquidating’ FVD leader Baudet

According to the Public Prosecution Service, this is a standard procedure if a threat to a politician is reported.

Is filing a report useful?

After the investigation, the Public Prosecution Service will inform Baudet whether, in the opinion of the judiciary, it makes sense to file a report against Derksen.

Even if the Public Prosecution Service gives a negative advice, the Forum for Democracy leader can still decide to file a complaint. The Public Prosecution Service cannot say how long the investigation into the report will take.

Derksen said in Wednesday’s Today Inside broadcast that he thought Baudet should be liquidated. Immediately after his comment, Derksen said, after a somewhat giggly reaction from presenter Wilfred Genee, that it was a slip of the tongue. In his own words, Derksen meant ‘that they should kick Baudet out of the Chamber’.

Watch the excerpt here:

A day later, he said he was convinced that Baudet doesn’t stand a chance if he decides to report the crime.

Derksen also said he was very surprised that there was a fuss about his comment. He therefore refuses to apologize to Baudet.
