Four Hague-riot suspects in court for threatening police
Four men accused of sedition and threatening police officers in The Hague around the death of Mitch Henriquez, are appearing before the fast court on Friday, AD reports. Three of the suspects are charged with threatening police officer Marius Blok, who gave an interview on how these threats impacted his life earlier this week. They are also accused of threatening another officer from the Heemstraat police station and an officer from the Zuiderpark station. The four suspects come from Rotterdam, Leeuwarden, Terneuzen and Amsterdam. They may be the same men that were arrested earlier this week, bringing the total number of suspects arrested in connection with the Hague riots up to 250. The Public Prosecutor is trying to get cases revolving around violence against police officers or other people with an official duty through the court as quickly as possible.
