Gokmen Tanis convicted by Dutch court in jihad attack

posted by Christopher W. Holton

A Dutch court convicted 38-year old Gokmen Tanis on Friday, 20 March in the 18 March 2019 murder of 4 people on a train.

The Dutch man of Turkish descent was sentenced to life in prison.

Tanis boarded the tram, and drew a pistol with which he, while shouting “Allah,” shot innocent passengers in cold blood. He used a pistol equipped with a silencer to shoot the passengers and then jumped off of the tram and shot a driver sitting behind the wheel of a car.

Three people on the train died as did the man in the car.

The attack, which happened just days after the massacre at mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand received very little news coverage at the time…
