A Dutch court decision to ban the pro-paedophile organisation Martijn will not be looked at by the European Court of Human Rights, news agency ANP says on Monday. The association was banned in the Netherlands last year but said at the time it hoped to get the European Court to re-examine the case. However, Christian Democrat [CDA] MP Pieter Omzigt [Omtzigt] said on Monday the court had confirmed to him that no case will be forthcoming. The Dutch Supreme Court said the organisation should be banned in April 2014 because the protection of children should weigh more heavily than freedom of expression.
