Hague official arrested for vandalism

Council member and frontrunner for the Partij van de Eenheid (Party for Unity, PvdE), Abderazak Khoulani, was apprehended for illegally hanging election posters in The Hague.

Surveilling officers spotted him and two others on Sunday at five minutes to midnight hanging posters on the old tax office at Holland Spoor station.

The three men were taken into the police department to be questioned. "Holding is fine", Khoulani says in a reaction. "But that we have bee arrested and had to spend time in a police cell is beyond all proportion."

The police announced that Khoulani and the two others were sent away with a fine of €140 after an hour. One of Khoulani's companions also had another outstanding fine, which he had to pay on top of it.
