OM: stop digital witch hunt suspects fatal assault Mallorca

Digital Witch Hunt

‘A list with the names of the alleged perpetrator group has been published on the website. Tracking down perpetrators is the work of the police and the Public Prosecution Service. A little googling really isn’t enough. There is a good chance that this will lead to wrong conclusions and that can get innocent people into serious trouble’, according to the Public Prosecution Service.

‘Hope extra work’

In addition, this digital witch hunt gives the police and the Public Prosecution Service a lot of extra work, now that people have been threatened and may need security. Time and attention that the police and the Public Prosecution Service would rather spend on finding out exactly what happened in Mallorca and bringing the right people to court.

Sentence reduction

Anyone who participates in this digital witch hunt should also realize that naming and distributing personal data of alleged perpetrators, who have not yet been brought to justice, can lead to a reduced sentence. So you could say that if you participate in public pillorying people, you actually ensure that they receive less punishment.

Public Prosecution Service intervenes in the event of threats or incitement

‘You can also get yourself into a lot of trouble if you call on the internet for the alleged perpetrators to be tackled. The Public Prosecution Service is keeping a close eye on this and will intervene in the event of criminal offenses, such as threats or incitement,’ according to the Public Prosecution Service.

State of affairs research

On July 18, 2021, a 27-year-old Dutchman died in Spain and research in Spain and the Netherlands has, in short, shown that this was caused by violence. Violence for which the Spanish police have captured a number of Dutch young men. These are issues that affect everyone. It is terrible to lose a loved one this way. The police and the Public Prosecution Service are doing everything they can to get to the bottom of this case so that those responsible for this fatal abuse do not escape punishment.

‘Wild stories’

There is a lot of wild stories circulating on social media and internet sites, which are presented as facts. The Public Prosecution Service wants to provide more explanation with this message, and calls on everyone to stop spreading personal data, photos and rumours.

Persecution in the Netherlands

There are various international conventions that say something about how to deal with a foreign suspect. In short, a country can choose to prosecute a foreigner itself or ask the home country to take over the investigation.

District Public Prosecutor’s Office Central Netherlands

In this case, the Spanish investigating judge has ruled that it is better to prosecute in the Netherlands. On 23 July 2021, the Spanish investigating judge requested the Central Netherlands District Prosecutor’s Office to take over the criminal proceedings on the basis of the European Mutual Assistance Convention. That request was received by the Public Prosecution Service on 26 July 2021 and a day later, the Central Netherlands Public Prosecutor’s Office informed the Spanish investigating judge that it would take over the criminal proceedings.

No grounds for refusal

This case concerns a Dutch victim, with Dutch suspects. The violent crime that the Dutch are suspected of in Spain is also punishable in the Netherlands. If there are no grounds for refusal, the Public Prosecution Service must take over the case in accordance with international conventions. Grounds for refusal are, for example, that prosecution in the Netherlands is contrary to human rights or that there is a statute of limitations. And that wasn’t the case. The Public Prosecution Service therefore had to comply with the request of the Spanish investigating judge.

Incorrect stories online

The Public Prosecution Service finds it extremely bad that wild and incorrect stories are circulating on the internet in which it is claimed that the mother of one of the suspects is a public prosecutor. There is also no question that ‘rich parents’ have asked the Public Prosecution Service to take over the case from the Spaniards. If there are family connections or another form of conflict of interest in an investigation, the case is transferred to another part of the Public Prosecution Service.

Translate Spanish research file

The Spanish research file will be translated as soon as possible. At the same time, the police, led by two case officers from the Central Netherlands Public Prosecutor’s Office, are conducting their own investigations. It is important that this is done carefully.

Reports of other abuses in Mallorca

The Public Prosecution Service also includes the reports made in the Netherlands of other abuses on Mallorca, possibly by the same perpetrators. The Spanish police have made a link between these abuses and the violence against the 27-year-old Dutchman. The Public Prosecution Service is of course also investigating this. As soon as there is more to report about the progress of the investigation, the Public Prosecution Service will do so.
