VVD wants to prohibit travelling to IS-areas

The Dutch political party VVD wants to prohibit travelling to areas where IS is active, to make penalizing of returning jihadi’s easier. Returnees will be automatically arrested, interviewed, kept an eye on and perhaps prosecuted. It also makes it harder for people to actually leave the country. According to party member Klaas Dijkhoff, it is important to not let them leave the country. Because then the problem will just be spread across borders, the jihadi network will be expanded and it also won’t be helpful in deradicalizing people.
