Dutch woman, 19, arrested for 'recruiting Syria jihadis'
Arab News - 23 July, 2013
Dutch authorities have arrested a 19-year-old woman suspected of recruiting
jihadis to fight alongside rebels in Syria, a prosecution spokeswoman said
"The woman was arrested and has been remanded for two weeks while an
investigation is under way," Nicolette Stoel, spokeswoman for the Public
Prosecutor's office said.
There is growing concern in the Netherlands about young Dutch Muslims being
enlisted to fight in Syria, with a British study in April saying at least
107 Dutch citizens were fighting Syrian forces in the war-torn country.
Police arrested the woman in Zoetermeer, a small city just east of The
Hague, on Wednesday after families filed complaints with the authorities
that their relatives had gone to fight in Syria.
"In some of the complaints people who are allegedly enlisting fighters are
named," Stoel said. The young woman will remain behind bars for a fortnight
before a judge must decide whether the case against her can go ahead.
"At this stage she is only allowed contact with her lawyer," Stoel said.
"In the meantime, a broader investigation into the recruitment by radical
Muslims of young people to fight in Syria is underway. First and foremost we
have to ensure their safety as they want to travel to a dangerous area," she
