No Surrender founder suspected of ordering attack on Public Prosecutor
No Surrender founder Klaas Otto is suspected of ordering an attack on the Public Prosecutor working on his case from his cell in the Middelburg prison, Otto's lawyer Louis de Leon confirmed to NU.nl. According to the lawyer, his client finds these accusations completely ridiculous.
On Monday the police arrested a 44-year-old man in Sliedrecht. He is believed to be the one Otto ordered to commit the attack. The attack was directed at Greetje Bos, prosecutor at the Public Prosecutor's Office Zeeland-West-Brabant and the prosecutor on the case against Otto.
The police searched Otto's cell as well as two houses in Sliedrecht and Rotterdam. Computers, mobile phones and digital data carriers were seized. The investigation into the possible attack has been in progress for several weeks, according to the newspaper.
Otto is currently in custody awaiting his trial. He is accused of extortion, assault and arson, amongst other things. The former No Surrender boss also made the news last week, when it was revealed that he was in the possession of tapped conversations of other inmates. He requested the recordings of calls he made from prison to prepare for his trial. By mistake, the police also gave him the recordings of phone calls other prisoners made.
