The Public Prosecutor demanded 40 hours of community service against a 47-year-old woman who threatened Prime Minister Mark Rutte on Facebook. The Prosecutor also asked the court in The Hague to impose mandatory treatment for the woman's psychological problems, the Telegraaf reports.

In November last year the woman commented on a Facebook post by Rutte about politician Sylvana Simmons. "If we can't hang Sylvana, then we'll hang this bastard. The main cause", she wrote. The woman later stated that she was acting on impulse and that she regrets the comment.

The Public Prosecutor demanded compulsory psychiatric treatment in an institution against 25-year-old Vino H., the man who stabbed 96-year-old Oma Toni in De Pijp, Amsterdam last year. H. told the court that the stabbing was a one time thing and a mistake, though it was "worth it" to get back at his father, according to AD reporter Victor Schildkamp tweeting live from within the courtroom.
