Anouar T., suspected of involvement in the murder of defense attorney Derk Wiersum, was arrested in his cell last week on suspicion of an attempted murder on 30 October 2019. A 28-year-old man was beaten to within an inch of his life with a large demolition hammer on Hopakker in Utrecht by three men, AD reports.
New details about Anouar T., a suspect linked to the daytime assassination of defense attorney Derk Wiersum, were revealed in a court appearance on Wednesday afternoon, with prosecutors revealing portions of a wiretapped conversation which they said are evidence T. was involved in the killing, according to AD reporter Yelle Tieleman tweeting live from the courtroom.
Police arrested a 31-year-old Rotterdam man who they suspect of co-perpetrating the assassination of criminal defense attorney Derk Wiersum last September. The man was arrested in Amsterdam on Monday, and remanded into custody by a magistrate on Thursday, police said.
Amsterdam police investigating the murder of criminal defense attorney Derk Wiersum have arrested another man on suspicion of involvement in Wiersum's slaying. The suspect, identified by AD as a nephew of alleged crime boss Ridouan Taghi, is the third person police picked up this week as part of the case.
