First Political Murder in Holland?

Pim Fortuyn was a Dutch politician and runner up for Prime Minister when he was assassinated by Volkert van der Graaf on May 6th 2002, only nine days before the Dutch General Election.

Last year his murderer has been released from detention despite the public's disapproval.

Nobody will ever know what the elections would have brought as Fortuyn intended to reshuffle the political 'compromise' system as it was.

All in all there have been many Political changes since his death 13 years ago.

This statue in his remembrance can be found in Rotterdam - His home town - just opposite of the Schielandhuis.
