Amsterdam police suspends 13th worker over ethics violations since May
A police employee working in Amsterdam was suspended under suspicion of sharing confidential information, and the unauthorized use of internal computer systems. The officer is at least the thirteenth employee from the Amsterdam office placed on leave in the last six months.
The worker was sent away on Wednesday. Police announced the decision a day later.
A police internal affairs unit is investigating the case in conjunction with the Public Prosecution Service (OM).
This past August, eight police employees were suspended over allegations of possessing hard drugs while off-duty. Another was alleged to have violated confidentiality and corruption rules in July. Two more police workers were accused of misconduct before that.
Another was suspended over a harassment and stalking claim, and at the end of May one officer was accused of fraud and forgery.
