Belgium is taking a new initiative to combat hate preachers. A new databank will be created to identify and expel individuals who preach hatred on Belgian soil.
Until now several Belgian intelligence services have been busy tracking down such people. The issue became pressing with the appearance of the now banned Sharia4Belgium outfit. Often though information was stored at different locations and there was insufficient exchange of information.
The Belgian interior, justice, foreign, defence and migration ministers now promise a coordinated approach.
