Wanted convict apprehended
A special police unit apprehended a man from The Hague who still had to serve a sentence of 197 days in jail, and pay a fine of nearly €17,000. The man was apprehended at around 5 p.m. on Wednesday in a home in Rijswijk, the NOS reports. The man was convicted of swindling among other crimes, and was sentenced to the jail time, and the payment of damages, but never adhered to his sentence. He must now still do his time and pay his fine. He was apprehended by the so-called EVA-team (Execution Judgement Punished). The team concentrates on convicted felons who still have to serve their sentence. They look especially at the "big fish" who are thought to earn their money in the criminal world.
