“Moroccan” Dutch secret service agent assigned to protect Geert Wilders is suspended for leaking details to a criminal group

A Dutch secret service agent assigned to protect anti-Islam campaigner Geert Wilders has been suspended on suspicion of leaking details to a criminal group.

The agent has been identified as an experienced officer in his mid-30s with a ‘Moroccan background’ who was part of a team responsible for looking after the frontrunner in next month’s Dutch elections.

Wilders, who campaigns on an anti-Islam platform that includes closing mosques and banning immigration from Muslim countries that has led to the protection, condemned the alleged breach, saying he cannot function without adequate security.
