Threats and violent attacks against the Vlaams-Belang-Politician Filip
Dewinter are part of his everyday life. The criminals get usually mild sentences.
A 33 year old salafist from Geneva who threatened the Vlaams-Belang Politician Filip Dewinter with death, was now sentenced by a criminal court in Antwerp to 46 hours of voluntary social work and a fine of 275 euros on probation plus one euro as moral compensation. He must do the social work in a center for the support of integration.
El Chazoini Lishssin, a salafist muslim from Dubai, announced on September last year that he and his brothers would kill Filip Dewinter and his wife. Lishssin pronounced the death threats against the leader of Vlaams Belang just the same day as the islam critical party was holding a demonstration against the planned building of a mosque at Ground Zero in New York in the day of the 9th anniversary of the 9:11 attacks. Because the threats seemed to be serious, Dewinter lodged a complaint at the police, which lead to the tracing of Lishssin.
The criminal court of Antwerp determined the full veracity of the facts and also found that there was neither self-defense nor any other other exculpatory factor. Dewinter himself was not satisfied with the verdict of the court, or course. “48 hours of social work and a fine of 275 euros is a ridiculous sentence. These kind of death threats are not acceptable. The final goal of it was to intimidate and silence a politician through death threats” The flemish politician said. This kind of sentence has no deterrent effect. The minimal sentence is almost an incentive to repeat such death threats, Dewinter opined after the process. The loose punishment stands in blatant contradiction to the “zero-tolerance policy” against muslim extremism announced by the minister of justice Annemie Turtelboom.
