Justice takes 2nd blackmailer former mayor Loon op Zand

Justice has also caught the second suspect of the extortion of the former mayor Wim Luijendijk of Loon op Zand. That was clear Thursday at the court in Breda.

The 44-year-old Danijel B. from Capelle aan den IJssel had to be there. Because justice wants to deal with the cases of the two suspects at the same time, the case against B was postponed to 25 January.

Luijendijk, until 2017 mayor of the Brabant municipality, has been extorted for almost two years after contacting a 24-year-old man in 2016. Then he was attacked and extorted by B. B. told Luijendijk that the man he had contact with was underage and demanded money, otherwise he would go to justice and the media.

The mayor would have paid 15,000 euros. In a letter to the Brabants Dagblad, he called it “naïve”. At the beginning of this year, B. Luijendijk would have mistreated in his own home.

B. has known. He said during a previous session that Luijendijk did not do anything wrong at all.


Penalty imposed for money laundering

Justice has demanded five years in prison against a 68-year-old Rotterdam citizen. He would have laundered more than 5.5 million euros. His nephew would have helped him by pinning almost every day for two years.

Research showed that the 68-year-old man had invented a complicated construction to launder money. He moved large amounts through accounts in Switzerland and foundations from Liechtenstein.

The suspect also bought a Rolex watch and a Volkswagen bus with cash. According to the judiciary, there is no credible explanation for the ability that the man has.

A prison sentence of fifteen months was demanded against the cousin, of which five months were conditional.

OM demands 10 years in prison

Justice demands ten years in prison against a man from Capelle aan den IJssel, who would have killed a 56-year-old Rotterdammer. The victim was stabbed in February for his home at the Mombassaplaats in Rotterdam-Alexander. He died a few days later.

Both men were good friends. According to justice, the suspect thought the victim was after his wife.

The 47-year-old suspect denies. He said he had been around in the area on the fateful night, but according to him the victim was attacked by two men. Witnesses say they have heard a scream and then have seen one man walk away.

Suspect Mehrdad D. left the Netherlands shortly after the stabbing. According to justice, he fled to his native Iran. He himself says that his father was dying.

Justice bases evidence partly on daughter’s statement

Justice bases the evidence largely on the statement of the daughter of the suspect. She says that her father was on his tour in February. She sent a message to the victim that he should not open the door. But the man did not read the warning in time because he was already outside. His phone was in.

Justice calls it striking that after the stabbing the suspect suddenly changed car and replaced his clothing. He would also have instructed friends to declare that the victim acted in pills. Justice points out that illegal trade has not been proven.

D. also suspected of maltreatment woman

Mehrdad D. is also suspected of having mistreated his wife. He also denies that. De Capellenaar did get a restraining order and slept in a garden shed.

Also in this case, the daughter has declared incriminating and reported. Her mother did not, according to justice because she was too scared.

On behalf of the son of the victim, an emotional statement was read in court. “It would be in equilibrium if the murderer also no longer has a right to life, so it should be logical if I actually wish him the death penalty.

The son himself was not present. According to his mother, his life collapsed, he no longer comes out of the house and he has attempted suicide.

The judge in Rotterdam will rule in two weeks.

Helicopter hijacking attempt proven not

The court in Amsterdam has imposed jail sentences of up to thirty months on Monday for four men who were on trial for their involvement in the attempt to free Benaouf A. from the prison of Roermond with a hijacked helicopter.

The sentences imposed are considerably lower than the nine years that the Public Prosecution Service (OM) had demanded. This is because the court concludes that the men had not yet started the hijacking, because the police intervened before this could take place.

Because the police stopped the men before the start of the execution, the attempted hijacking and liberation can not be proven by any of the suspects.

The court considers it proven that the four men had started preparing the helicopter hijacking. “They had a bag with weapons and ammunition waiting in a car near the place where the hijacking would take place.”

In total nine men stood trial, five of them were acquitted of preparing the hijacking. The Public Prosecution Service has announced that it will appeal. Justice disagrees with the verdict and finds the punishments too low.

Benaouf A. had to be hoisted from the airport

The men tried to free the criminal Benaouf A. last October. He is seen as one of the leaders of the Amsterdam underworld. A. is currently serving a twelve-year sentence for managing a liquidation in Antwerp in 2012.

According to justice, the men wanted to lift him from the airspace with a rope and a car tire. Agents, however, could intervene because they were already aware of the plans.

For example, the airport where the helicopter was to be hijacked was ‘taken over’ by agents who pretended to be employees.
