Netherlands finally bans pedophile club

The pedo-party is over for the liberal Dutch.

A court in the city of Assen, Netherlands, has banned the pedophile association called "Martijn". The club must now disband immediately since the court ruled that its verdict applies immediately and cannot be suspended pending any appeal by Martijn. Martijn advocates sex between adults and children, in contravention to generally accepted norms and values in the Netherlands, according to the RNW news site based in Amsterdam.

Sex between adults and children is a no-no in the Netherlands, according to the judge ruling in the case. “That goes against the rule of law and infringes on the integrity of children. Dutch law should not allow any room for this to take place,” the judge explained. The judge also concluded children are vulnerable and should therefore be protected.

The pedophilia club's chairperson Marthijn Uittenboogaard says the association will decide whether or not to appeal the verdict, which must be presented within the next three months.

Dutch prosecutors were pleased with the decision. They also want the club's website taken off the internet as soon as possible. Politicians in The Hague are pleased with the ban, although some expressed concern that pedophiles go underground.

In 2006, Marthijn Uittenboogaard launched a political party which sought to lower the age of consent for sex to 12 years old and to legalize child pornography. Officially it was called Party for Neighbourly Love, Freedom, and Diversity (Partij voor Naastenliefde, Vrijheid en Diversiteit, PNVD, in Dutch), but it was soon dubbed the pedo-party. The party never took part in elections and disbanded in 2010, but was not banned by the courts.
