A Dutch official took her own life after revealing in a video that she had been kidnapped and gang-raped by a group of Muslims trying to force her to close her mouth in meetings. Willie Dille, 53, had been a member of Dutch parliament between 2010 and 2012. She was currently a member of the city council in The Hague.
“I just want the world to know the truth. On 15th March 2017, I was kidnapped, raped and abused by a group of Muslims because they wanted to keep my mouth shut in the city council of The Hague.”
“After they were done they said: ‘Do you respect Muhammad, do you respect Allah, do you respect Arnoud?’”
Arnoud refers to Arnoud van Doorn, a former member of the Freedom Party who later broke with the group and converted to Islam. Dille also claimed that Arnoud was involved in the attack in some way.
Police say that while Dille had approached them about an attack, she had declined to file a report.
“We have had multiple contacts with her, including recently,” police spokeswoman Hilde Vijverberg said Thursday.
“We offered her help and said we need a formal complaint and concrete evidence to start an investigation,” Vijverberg said. “But she did not make a formal complaint and we did not get any concrete information to enable us to launch an inquiry.”
Pauline Krikke, mayor of The Hague, issued a statement calling Dille “an involved and passionate councilor and colleague.”
Rapes have become more and more common in European countries taking in refugees. The Netherlands is no exception.
A recent report shows that almost half of women in the Netherlands have been victims of assault. This statistic stems from a new report by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) on violence against women.
Forty-five percent of Dutch women acknowledged that they have experienced some form of physical or sexual violence since reaching the age of 15, a figure well above the European average of 33 percent.
