Powder Letter Palace Of Justice

At the Palace of Justice in Den Bosch a so called powder letter was received on Wednesday. Which substance was in the letter, is not yet clear. The letter is now at the RIVM (National Institute for Public Health and the Environment) for investigation. Police are investigating where the letter came from and who sent it.

The Palace of Justice was not evacuated and all sessions could continue.

However, nine people who were in the room, where the letter was discovered, were briefly put in a separate room because of the possible risk of infection. After investigation they were allowed to go home later, as well as five others who may have had contact with the suspect letter.

In which area of the Palace of Justice the letter was discovered and to whom it was addressed, was not revealed by the police.
