Amsterdam politicians were shocked by the revelation that Leen Schaap, commander of the Amsterdam fire department, received death threats from members of his own corps. They think it is outrageous, too crazy for words and completely unacceptable, AT5 reports.
Amsterdam city councilor Diederik Boomsma (CDA) received a death threat shortly after the city council discussed squatters that have been living on the ADM site in the city for decades. He reported the death threat to the police, the Telegraaf reports.
The police refused to comment to the newspaper about the threat. Boomsma confirmed that he was threatened and reported it to the police, but would not say anything further.
