Government officials receive bullets in mail
Two government officials of the environmental inspection South-Holland received bullets in the mail at their residential addresses, Tuesday. The letters were addressed to the City of Dordrecht, according to a spokesperson. The Environmental, construction and housing inspection, where the two officials are employed, has been under threat before.
In the past government officials were also threatened, an office was burned down, official cars were set on fire, and hand grenades were discovered by a building. The City wants the Inspectorate to more rigorously inspect if landlords adhere to the rules. The threats may be related to the stricter inspections. 'We hope the police and the prosecution manage to arrest and prosecute a suspect this time,' said alderman Piet Sleeking. In cooperation with the police additional measures are considered for the safety of staff and properties.
