Dutch police have stepped up the level of security around Prime Minister Mark Rutte to deal with the risk of an attack or kidnapping.

The information is revealed by the daily De Telegraaf.

According to the newspaper, the prime minister was followed by suspected lookouts from a notorious drug trafficking gang dubbed the “Mocro Mafia”.

The gang is nicknamed the “Mocro-mafia” because its members are mainly of Moroccan and Caribbean origin.

Specially trained police officers from the Dutch royal security and diplomatic services were assigned to protect Mr Rutte with “visible and invisible measures”, according to De Telegraaf.

Several Dutch channels mention this threat, which the police refuse to comment on.

The security services’ concern follows a government pledge to crack down on organized crime after the murder of an investigative journalist in July.
