The Hague diabetic teen arrested again
Diabetes patient Yosra Aajir who was arrested on January 13 as she injected insulin in a fitting room of a HEMA in The Hague, has been arrested a second time; this time at an H&M branch in the city.
It appears though that this time she was caught shoplifting. “On January 21 the same girl was arrested indeed, for a similar case. A police report has been made and she has to appear in court soon,” The Hague mayor Van Aartsen said.
Yosra (17) was first held in a HEMA branch, after when store security guards caught her injecting herself in a fitting room. They accused her of being a junkie pushing drugs, but she denied and claimed she had suffered a light seizure and docked into a fitting room for a quick insulin injection. Her pants had been down to her knees when the security guards barged in and she discharged some urine, so initially she was also accused of vandalism. She claimed she was manhandled by the guards before being handed to police, who also did not believe she was a diabetes patient. “This is just a trick to get out of jail faster. A lot of you allochtonen (immigrants) do this,” a policeman apparently sneered at her. The officers did not believe her mother either. She was held in custody for four hours. The treatment Yossra was given prompted disgust, from among other the association of diabetes patients. HEMA later apologized and sent her a bouquet of flowers. It is not clear what she is accused of stealing now at H&M. Reports are that she was caught red handed by store security guards, who then handed her over to police. Her family insists that this second arrests is also a mistake.
