The police posted photos of people involved in the anti-asylum center riots in Geldermalsen on December 16th, on their website on Friday. The faces in the photos are blurred out. If the rioters do not turn themselves in by Wednesday, the police will show the photos - without the blur - on the broadcast of Bureau GLD that same day. If that still does not deliver the desired results, the photos will be shown in the popular program Opsporing Verzocht on February 2nd. The anti-asylum center protest started out quietly until a group of about 80 protesters turned against the police. Two officers and a number of other protesters were injured. Fourteen people were arrested on the night of the riots. These suspects are allowed to await their trial in freedom.  The police immediately started collecting photos and video footage of the riots and managed, from which they singled out those responsible for the riots. The photos were first shared internally through the police systems, but this did not result in any useful information.
