Pak man jailed for 10 yrs for plotting Dutch MP's murder

The Hague, Nov 19 (IANS) A Dutch court sentenced a Pakistani man to 10 years imprisonment on Monday for plotting the assassination of Dutch MP Geert Wilders.
The court found the man, identified as 27-year-old Junaid I., guilty of plotting the murder of Wilders, who announced a Prophet Mohammed cartoon competition.
Junaid, who had travelled from France to Holland, was arrested in August 2018 at a train station in The Hague after he posted a film on Facebook, wherein he claimed he wanted to "send Wilders to hell" and urged others to help.
Judges at The Hague's district court found the man guilty of "planning a murder with a terrorist motive" and incitement to commit a terror attack.
However, during the trial Junaid called himself a "peace-loving" man, who had only travelled to Holland to protest against Wilders' cartoon competition.
