In the broadcast, one man accuses the cops of excessive force in which he broke his hand. According to police, the public prosecutor determined that the actions of the officers were lawful in that case.

Police chief Michel de Roos of the Hague police does not recognize himself in the statements of the former police officers. Naturally violence occurs at the Hague police. Their actions aim to minimize the use of violence, but in some cases it is simply necessary, responds the chief.

In the past few years there were hardly any complaints, according to the police.
