Amsterdam cops suspended after stalking, fraud allegations
An Amsterdam police officer was suspended last week after the officer was deemed guilty of harassment, police said in a statement. The harassment was specified as a stalking case, according to the Telegraaf.
The decision to suspend the officer was made on Tuesday. It was publicly announced a day later. No further details were released about the case.
It’s the second member of the city’s police force to be suspended in a week. On May 28 an Amsterdam cop was disciplined over suspicion of fraud and forgery, police said.
Both officers were being actively investigated in criminal cases connected to their suspensions. The investigations were being carried out by an internal affairs unit of the Amsterdam police office.
