An employee of the police was suspended in a malpractice investigation into police union ANPV, a police spokesperson confirmed to ANP. Two former board members of the union are suspects in this case.

The police spokesperson would not tell ANP who the suspended employee is. The Telegraaf identifies the employee as Leatitia R., a former board member of ANPV who is currently working with job applicants at the police. According to the newspaper, she is suspected of embezzlement, money laundering and forgery. 

The newspaper also writes that the other suspect in this case is former ANPV chairman Geert P.

In addition to the Public Prosecutor's malpractice investigation, the police also launched an internal investigation into whether other board members and former board members of the union committed criminal offenses.
