Party still angry about Wiels’ body bag-remark – PVV boycotts Kingdom consultation

POSTED: 03/4/13 12:55 PM

St. Maarten – The Freedom Party PVV stays away from the inter-parliamentary consultation Ipko in The Hague this week because of the presence of Pueblo Soberano leader Helmin Wiels.
The party is angry because it claims Wiels said last year that he would send makambas (Dutch citizens) back home in body bags. The Dutch cabinet saw no reason to keep Wiels out of the consultation.

The Telegraaf reported this weekend that PVV-MP Sietse Fritsma refuses to sit at one table with a man who apparently wants to see Dutch citizens dead: “Wiels has seriously threatened the Dutch population with his racist and gruesome call for violence.”
From tomorrow until Friday the Parliaments of St. Maarten, the Netherlands, Curacao and Aruba meet in The Hague.
“Wiels is now coming to the country of the makambas as a member of the Curacaolenean delegations to butter us up turns the Ipko into a joke; no Dutchman ought to take part in it.”
Peter van Dijk, PVV-senator in the First Chamber who visited St. Maarten twice in the recent past, also boycotts the meetings. When he was in St. Maarten in January 2012, Van Dijk had this to say about the autonomous countries in the Kingdom: “We would love to get rid of these islands, and if they make a bigger mess of it than it is today, that may very well happen.”
After this newspaper published his remark, Van Dijk got additional security.

    A repeat of what I already posted at

    ‘Mr Wiels: I live on sxm. I lived in your country, loved it’s people, but when faced with a choice; -chose not to return due largely the utter distastefulness of your then comments regarding the Dutch. you and those you represent are doing your ‘country’ massive damage, as many, in the past, of your ilk, have done elsewhere in the Caribbean.

    Personally I loathe the PVV (& Wilders) but… you are evidently of the same bigoted caliber
    & as such a disservice to a truly fine people: Your people
    Personally I wouldn’t wish to see you in Holland, or anywhere else, either.’
