Lawyer Britta Bohler leaks secret documents about clients security to Green Left party where she is a member
October 7, 2007

"Freedom party PVV leader Geert Wilders doesn't think the Netherlands should foot the bill for Ayaan Hirsi Ali's security in the US. If someone settles abroad he says it is "absurd to expect the Netherlands to continue to pay forever."Wilders, who himself has been under protection for years because of death threats against him, said this on Tuesday. His comments come in response to Hirsi Ali's return to the Netherlands after the government decided to stop paying for her security costs in the US.


Why Is The Netherlands' Terrorists Favorite Lawyer, Britta Böhler, Representing Ayaan Hirsi Ali?

October 3, 2007 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Now that American Enterprise Institute scholar Ayaan Hirsi Ali has returned to the Netherlands, searching for sufficient funding to cover her prodigious "security" detail [estimated to cost upwards of $2 million per year], an extremely troubling relationship comes into clearer focus; Ali is represented by Britta Böhler, a naturalized citizen of Holland and a notorious defense attorney for European Marxist and Islamist terrorists.

"Former VVD politician Ayaan Hirsi Ali feels that she must ultimately arrange her personal security herself. As long as she is unable, the Dutch government will bear a responsibility for her protection however.

Lawyer Britta Böhler said this on Wednesday on behalf of Hirsi Ali. Böhler hopes the statements will create more clarity on the situation in which the former politician finds herself. " [source, http://www.expatica.com/actual/article.asp?subchannel_id=1&story_id=44566]

As Dutch author & terror researcher Emerson Vermaat notes, during the trial of Samir Azzouz [the leader of "The Hofstadgroep" formerly headed by Mohammed Bouyeri, the Islamist who butchered Theo van Gogh in November 2004] Azzouz' attorney Britta Böhler threatened the judge, warning him to honor the "vox populi" [as represented by Azzouz' supporters in the courtroom's spectator gallery] and sumarily release the defendant.

Another member of Azzouz' defense team, Viktor Koppe asserted to the judges that the friends and supporters of defendant 'agreed' with him - implying that they constituted a "proxy jury."

"The 'NRC Handelsblad' on November 10th, the article 'Spirit of the times the motor behind the trial of Samir Azzouz' cited the lawyer Britta Böhler. She warned the judges for the vox populi, if the court didnt acquit the defendants in this case.

I myself observed the trial and heard Böhler's office colleague Victor Koppe declare during one of the hearings that he had the impression that the people in the spectators gallery agreed with him. In their deposition both public prosecutors referred to Koppe's remarks.

Since 2002 I have been closely following all the important terrorism trials closely and this year I wrote a book about the Hofstadgroep trial [Nederlandse Jihad' publisher Aspekt 2006]. I have never experienced that a lawyer at a sitting called attention to the 'vox populi' from the spectator's gallery. In addition to journalists, both friends and family of the suspects were sitting there, showing their support for the defendants.

Whenever something negative was said about the defendants in the courtroom the spectators in the spectators gallery made throat cutting gestures and I even heard someone say 'Cancer Jew.'" [source, Emerson Vermaat, as quoted in http://www.militantislammonitor.org/article/id/2544]

Born in Germany, Böhler was an early devotee of Marx and Lenin as a student and a supporter of the Red Army Faction, a German terrorist group. As an attorney, Böhler's vigorous defense of terrorists and left-wing activism has brought her acclaim within both revolutionary and radical Islamist circles.

"She happened to be a great admirer of Abdullah Öcalan, a Turk-Kurdish macho with a preference for blond European women and the leader of the PKK, an extremely violent Kurdish terrorist network which specialized in liquidating opponents. In Ocalan's terrorist camps, there were a few German women who previously belonged to, or sympathized with the Baader-Meinhof gang.

When Turkey finally captured Ocalan, Britta Böhler simply announced she was his lawyer. Just before Ocalan was captured, Böhler tried to arrange his flight to the Netherlands, but the Dutch authorities did not give Ocalan's plane permission to land - for reasons of State security. Böhler was upset, claiming that Ocalan's "right to asylum" had been ignored. It so happens that Böhler and her associates played a legal role - as attorneys - in virtually every major terrorism court case in the Netherlands." [source Emerson Vermaat, as quoted in Front Page Magazine, http://www.frontpagemag.com/Articles/Read.aspx?GUID={5B52E75F-E0F8-40AF-B325-46B73F55D557}]

Given Böhler's career, it seems inconceivable that she would be now be representing someone whose political ideology is seemingly diametrically opposed her own...that is unless Ms. Ali is not exactly what she has been representing herself as being. This is especially true when one considers that Böhler defended Volkert Van der Graaf, the assassin of Dutch MP Pym Fortuyn who was murdered for voicing concerns about the Netherland's Muslim population that were far less antagonistic than Ali's normal litany of charges.

As Ali's newest international theatrical dance plays out, the American Enterprise Institute had better give serious thought as to whether her continued "scholarship" at that esteemed institution has any value and whether she should be allowed to return, if and when she arranges private financing for her multi-million dollar "security" blanket.



Free At Last Redux - Ayaan Hirsi Ali Flees Again, Leaving U.S. For Holland

October 1, 2007 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - Adding another mysterious note to her already confusing relationship with the highly respected conservative think tank, the American Enterprise Institute, Ayaan Hirsi Ali has fled the United States and has once again taken up residence in Holland, the country from which she departed only last year, claiming that it couldn't properly provide for her security.

Since she came to prominence in the Netherlands as a critic of Islam [having fraudulently gained citizenship due to misrepresentations made on her asylum papers], Ali's entire career has been one of lies and controversy demarked by a remarkable degree of self-promotion bordering on the shameless. Her abrupt and unannounced departure from America merely adds to a wake of destruction including a murdered and nearly decapitated film maker Theo Van Gogh - butchered by Islamist Mohammed Bouyeri who was allegedly incensed over Ali's script for Van Gogh's controversial short film "Submission," as well as being responsible for the resignation of Dutch PM Jan Peters Balkenende and his entire cabinet in June of 2006 over its treatment of Ali. As we wrote in a May 22, 2004 piece Ayaan Hirsi Ali, 24 x 7

"What is it about Ayah Hirsi Ali that makes terror experts, conservatives and secular Jews lose their grasp on reality?

Ali came to general public attention outside of the Netherlands on November 2, 2004 the day Theo van Gogh was slaughtered by Islamist Mohammed Bouyeri.

Bouyeri killed van Gogh because of the perceived anti-Muslim nature of his controversial film "Submission," scripted by Hirsi Ali who received 18,000 Euros for her efforts.

Since then it has been non-stop self promotion on the part of Ali, who fled Holland in the wake of the van Gogh murder only to return in hip new duds and sporting a movie star coif to pursue further self-aggrandizement."

Contacted this afternoon by PLN regarding Ali's sudden and mysterious departure, AEI spokesman Veronique Rodman was not exactly forthcoming, refusing to comment on speculation that Ali left the United States because the Dutch had refused to continue paying for her security detail while she resided here, only stating for the record that, "She is still an AEI scholar...there has been no change in her scholar status."

Ali's lying and theatrics prompted one Dutch paper to comment:

"Ayaan Hirsi Ali is once again back in what she herself called 'the pressure cooker of Holland.' At the beginning of February she said in an interview that she was glad that an end had come to the pressure cooker. She felt well in the United States and in spite of the security was "much more a normal person in the melting pot." [source, http://www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/72066201/Hirsi_Ali_terug_in__snelkookpan_Holland_.html]

In a Dutch interview with the Trouw newspaper several years ago Hirsi Ali characterized herself as a "consummate liar." Today's development in the Ali saga demonstrate that her skills along those lines have not diminished at all with time.



MIM: More theatrics as Britta Bohler leaks secret documents about Hirsi Ali's security in the United States to Green Left members of parliament. Not surprisingly Bohler is also a member and parlimentarian from the same party.

Cabinet angry at lawyer of Ayaan Hirsi Ali 910/9/07

Kamer bos op advocaat Hirsi Ali


De Tweede Kamer is boos op Hirsi Ali's advocate Britta Böhler. Böhler stuurde een aantal Kamerleden dinsdag een aantal vertrouwelijke stukken over het overleg tussen Hirsi Ali en Nederlandse autoriteiten over haar beveiliging in de Verenigde Staten.

De Kamer begon vanmiddag aan een spoeddebat over de beveiliging van het oud-VVD-Kamerlid.

Het debat begon met een verklaring van minister Hirsch Ballin van Justitie die Böhlers actie "zeer ongewoon" noemde en de Kamer verzocht de stukken niet in het debat te betrekken.

Diverse Kamerleden spraken daarop hun verontwaardiging uit over de actie van Böhler, die behalve advocaat ook namens GroenLinks lid van de Eerste Kamer is.

Volgens CDA'er Haersma Buma is het "een schandaal dat dit soort zaken openbaar worden gemaakt." VVD-kamerlid Griffith zei "ronduit verbijsterd" te zijn.

Beide parlementariërs suggereerden daarbij een verband met het feit dat het spoeddebat over Hirsi Ali's beveiliging door GroenLinks werd aangevraagd.


MIM: According to this article it was Hirsi Ali who told Bohler to leak the documents.
