Dutch MP Refused Visa, Cancels Egypt Visit

8 November 2011

Dutch MP Raymond de Roon of the anti-Islam PVV has been denied a visa to Egypt. Consequently, the working trip planned by parliament’s foreign affairs committee has been cancelled. Telegraaf reports De Roon’s assertion that he was refused the visa on the basis of his earlier statements regarding the “ethnic cleansing” of Christians ousted from Egypt.
