Dutch Muslim group urges Moroccan pension fraudApril 27, 2014
The Dutch benefits agency SVB is trying to find out the value of assets held by public benefit recipients. To assist in that effort, they’ve asked Moroccan pensioners for their Moroccan identity numbers, because many of them have properties and even businesses in Morocco from which they generate income that they have not disclosed to the authorities in the Netherlands.
Meanwhile, a Muslim foundation known as the Euro-Mediterranean Center of Migration & Development (Emcemo) is encouraging Moroccan immigrants to withhold their identity numbers from SVB.
The benefits should be suspended until the recipients comply. They were probably required to disclose foreign assets when they first applied for benefits anyway. Financing terrorism with fraudulently claimed benefits by Islamist immigrants, which has been endorsed by the likes of Anwar al-Awlaki and Anjem Choudary and implemented by men like the Tsarnaev brothers, is an increasing threat to Western democracies. De Telegraaf has previously reported on the exploitation of public benefits in the Netherlands by radical Salafist networks.

Holland: Islamic foundation instructs Moroccans how to commit benefit fraud
Moroccans not happy with fraud inquiry of Social Insurance Bank
The Euro-Mediterranean Centre of Migration & Development (Emcemo) in Amsterdam is calling on Moroccan elderly not to provide their Moroccan identity number to the Social Insurance Bank (SVB). With that information the SVB traces social benefit fraud.
SVB asks Moroccan recipients of Additional Provision Income Elderly (AIO) since last week in a letter to pass that number. Thus the SVB can check in Morocco if someone owns houses, land or savings in that country.
This benefit is for older people with an inadequate pension and little capital and little additional revenue: with the AIO, the state pension is supplemented to match the minimum income. It is mandatory to report foreign property but it is often difficult for the SVB to check if someone has done that.”
