Suspect arrested for explosion at Polish supermarket
Police arrested a 19-year-old man in Rotterdam on suspicion of involvement in the explosion at a Polish supermarket in Beverwijk on December 9. The arrest took place on Tuesday, reports the Public Prosecution Service OM.
The suspect has been denied bail and will remain in custody of the police for the duration of the investigation. He is being held in complete limitation, says an OM spokesperson. This means that he may not have contact with anyone other than his lawyer.
