Muslim woman gets injuction against Amsterdam police

The Amsterdam municipality has recently started following up Muslim 'suspects' and 'harassing' them, a new method in its fight against terrorism. One of these suspected was a Dutch woman who converted to Islam and was going around with a man who had ties with the Hofstad group.

The police followed her around, causing her inconveniences, made surveillances in her street and observed her house. The woman turned to the courts, saying she was being harassed for no reason. The police claim to have found cassettes calling for Jihad in her house, but no charges have been put up against her and the woman denied ownership of the tapes.

The court called the municipal harassment measures: out of proportion and therefore illegal.
