Dutch anti-immigration MP won't be silenced

THE HAGUE (Reuters) - A Dutch anti-immigration politician, who is living in a maximum-security jail to protect him from attack due to his criticism of radical Islam, plans to get back to public campaigning despite death threats.

Geert Wilders went into hiding after the November 2 murder of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh and the subsequent arrest of a group of suspected radical Islamists who are accused of plotting to kill him and other prominent politicians.

Wilders was forced out of the liberal VVD party last year for opposing Turkey's bid to join the European Union. He recently revealed he had been housed in a prison cell, to pressure the government to find a more comfortable secure home.

"It feels like being trapped and the word freedom has become a totally different concept for me," Wilders told Reuters in an interview in the Dutch parliament, where he returned to work in December
