  •  Dutch Justice a LIFE sentence (none)
    Murder execution style of Theo van Gogh - an outspoken film producer of "Submission" and criticaster of the Islam - by Mohammed Bouyeri, an Islamist and radical of Moroccan descent - LIFE sentence, no early release possible.

    In two day trial, the multiple judge bench pronounced the heaviest sentencing possible in the Netherlands, due to Bouyeri's extreme Islamist beliefs and no repentance. Judges considered the murder and act of terror, a new law made possible in the last year due to tougher legislation. Bouyeri will be confined in prison with such arrangement, he is not free to spread his Islamist teaching to other Muslims inside, or outside the cell.

    Mohammed Bouyeri was provided counsel, but did not offer defense during the trial.
