The arrest of former Dutch soldier Jitse Akse on suspicion that he killed ISIS-fighters in Syria, is leading to fierce criticism against the Public Prosecutor. The Prosecutor is abusing its powers as Akse was only arrested to prevent him from returning to Syria, says University of Amsterdam international law professor Geert-Jan Knoops. A petition against Akse's arrest already has almost 50 thousand signatures, and more than 21 thousand people liked a Facebook group created to show support for the former soldier.
