The body of a man found in woods near Utrecht has been identified as that of a former provincial councillor for the anti-immigration PVV, according to media reports on Wednesday afternoon.
Jos van Hal Scheffer left the party last month after his wife became a suspect in a million euro fraud case. He was not a suspect in the case but did work at the same law firm as his wife, the Telegraaf said. Van Hal Scheffer had been missing since Monday and is thought to have committed suicide.
