Malek F. was sentenced to mandatory institutionalized psychiatric treatment for stabbing three people in The Hague on Liberation Day last year. The court considered it proven that he tried to stab his three random victims to death, but ruled on Monday that he was not acting on a terrorist motive, but due to the psychotic disorder he suffers from, NOS reports.
The Public Prosecutor is increasingly convinced that Malek F. had a terrorist motive when he stabbed three people in The Hague in May.
