School group ROC West-Brabant does not have to cooperate in the investigation into who posted a sex video of Chantal from Werkendam online, the court in Breda ruled on Wednesday. The IP address from which the by now infamous sex video was posted, was

The school group refused to cooperate by allowing their computer data to be searched, because it does not want to violate the privacy of its students, ANP reports.

The court ruled in the school's favor.

The ongoing criminal investigation may well identify the perpetrator, the judge said.

ROC West-Brabant has schools in Breda, Roosendaal and Bergen op Zoom, among others.

"Chantal is incredibly disappointed", her lawyer Thomas van Vugt commented to NU.nl. "In the end, you see that if you put this kind of misery on the internet from schools and libraries, you can get away with it."
