Today the Dutch News paper de Telegraaf posted an article stating that it was ok for Dutch Bikers to fight on the side designated by the Dutch Government i.e. NATO/US to be the good side.
I don’t know about you but that sort of conjures up a whole new realm of wrong to me!
The Dutch public prosecutor said overnight (NZ time) that motorbike gang members who have reportedly joined Kurds battling the Islamic State group in Iraq are not necessarily committing any crime.
“Joining a foreign armed force was previously punishable, now it’s no longer forbidden,” public prosecutor spokesman Wim de Bruin said.
“You just can’t join a fight against the Netherlands,” he said after reports emerged that Dutch bikers from the No Surrender gang were fighting IS insurgents alongside Kurds in northern Iraq.
The head of No Surrender, Klaas Otto, told state broadcaster NOS that three members who travelled to near Mosul in northern Iraq were from Dutch cities Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Breda.
A photograph on a Dutch-Kurdish Twitter account shows a tattooed Dutchman called Ron in military garb, holding a Kalashnikov assault rifle while he sat with a Kurdish comrade.
