Timo Huges, former CEO of Dutch rail company NS, was acquitted of fraud in the tender process for public transport in Limburg by the court in Den Bosch on Thursday. Five other suspects of fraud in this case were also acquitted, NU.nl reports.
The Public Prosecutor demanded a year in prison against Huges. He was accused of bribery, forgery and leaking confidential information. Huges always maintained that he was innocent, did not know about any fraud and did not interfere with the tender.
