The judge forged court documents, preventing a suspect from being released from prison. The judge even added the names of two of his colleagues to the document without their knowledge or approval.
This is the third judge in The Netherlands to be prosecuted for breaking the law.
Even more interesting is the fact that the Dutch Prosecutor’s Office did not want to prosecute this judge at first, but has now been forced to do so by a Dutch Court of Law. Upon being informed of the judge’s suspected crimes, the Prosecutor’s Office made him retire, after which the Prosecutor’s Office decided not to prosecute the judge.
