Dutch conservative lawyer and presenter Raisa Blommestijn has revealed she is being prosecuted by authorities in the Netherlands for online criticism of mass immigration after commenting on viral footage of a defenseless Dutch boy being thrown onto a railway track by a gang of migrants.

In a video published on X, Blommestijn confirmed she had received a summons from the Dutch public prosecutor to attend a court hearing in front of multiple judges on Aug. 19 to face charges of “racism” and “inciting hatred.”

Remix News has translated the video, which can be viewed below.

The Dutch conservative had commented on footage posted online of a gang attack against a white victim who was kicked relentlessly as he lay on the ground at an Amsterdam Metro station in May last year before he was thrown onto the railway track.

“Yet another white man got kicked around in the street by a group of black primates. How many defenseless white people remain to become victims? Countless probably: the open borders elite is importing these people in droves, with all the consequences that entails,” she wrote.

Blommestijn explained how she had been subjected to a four-hour police interrogation for her remarks and that the authorities were now proceeding with a prosecution.

“Until now, it was still unclear what would happen next with this case. Unfortunately, I can tell you that as of today, there is clarity. The sword of Damocles has fallen because this morning I found this letter in my letterbox. A letter that cannot be seen as anything other than a subpoena,” she told her followers on social media.

“On Aug. 19, I will have to appear before the multiple sentencing chamber,” she added.

Blommestijn accused her home country of “pretending to be a democracy, a country with freedom of speech,” and lamented the fact that politicians and commentators were being “persecuted for their political opinions,” for raising awareness of “social and political problems like mass migration, migrant violence, and repopulation.”

Eva Vlaardingerbroek, a fellow Dutch conservative commentator and good friend of Blommestijn, warned how “political dissidents are being criminalized in my country.”

The latest development continues a concerning trend across Western Europe of conservative activists being prosecuted for denouncing the liberal immigration policies of their respective governments and showcasing the effect they have had on society.

Earlier this month, three former members of Belgium’s “Nation” party were convicted for Facebook posts in which they compared the Brussels region of Molenbeek to Africa and called on the Belgian government to put “our people first.”

Similarly in Germany, Alternative for Germany (AfD) politician Marie-Thérèse Kaiser was convicted this month and fined €6,000 for publishing gang rape statistics in response to news that Afghan migrants would be moved to her district.

The 27-year-old politician was found guilty in the Verden regional court in Lower Saxony for “inciting hatred” against local Afghan workers.

Although these incidents are becoming increasingly more commonplace ahead of next month’s hotly contested European elections, in which right-wing parties are expected to increase their number of seats in Strasbourg, persecution of conservative activists highlighting these issues has been happening for some time.

In Sweden back in 2022, Prof. Kristina Sundquist from Sweden’s Lund University, who was the most cited professor at her university regarding social research, was investigated and faced prosecution for publishing an unauthorized research report that concluded the vast majority of rapes in the country were committed by immigrants.
