NOS / Serbian 'dike threatener' arrested

Quick and dirty translation from an NOS story.

In Serbia, a man was filmed in a YouTube video threatening to blow the Dutch dikes.According to Serbian media in Belgrade, he was arrested at the request of the Dutch judiciary.

The man, Miroljub Petrovic, made the movie on the boulevard in Zandvoort. In a calm tone, he says that he will blow up the Dutch sea defenses if the ICTY (UN Yugoslav) Serbian war suspects Karadzic, Mladic and Seselj are not set free.


Although Petrovic in Serbian media quickly claimed it was a joke, the Dutch authorities demand an investigation. That led to his arrest today. The court decided in Belgrade this week what will happen with Petrovic.

Miroljub Petrovic in Serbia is often in the news with controversial actions. In 2010 he opened clinics where homosexuals could be "cured," of their homosexuality,  as he put it.

In the same year he stood in front of the building of the ICTY in an Internet video in which he announced that the building would be razed.

I use this space as a brain dump, almost a note pad.
Lots of English translations of Dutch information, especially if I think something could also be useful for others. For speed I start with Google translate and then put on finishing touches myself.
