Jail for mosque arson plan

Roermond Court has sentenced 20-year-old Peter G. to three years jail, 12 months of which were suspended, for his role in preparing an arson attack at a Venray mosque. The court ruled it was not proven the man actually attempted to set fire to the mosque on 11 November when it was occupied, but said he was involved in preparations. He was arrested with a friend following the murder of Theo van Gogh. There were Molotov cocktails in their car. Three others have previously been sentenced to two years jail.
