Oscar Dros, one of the Dutch police chiefs, called on the people to let the authorities do their duty, because there is a risk that other people will die in such circumstances, writes Digi24. He says about 250 such incidents have been reported so far – all of them have been attacked. Threats and harassment also take place on the Internet. Several Facebook groups have been set up to organize “pedophile hunters”.
The lawyer for the 15-year-old boy, the initiator of the “pedophile hunt”, says that he came up with the idea because he was “bored because of quarantine”. He says he did not personally participate in the attack.
Seven teenagers have been arrested, six of them minors.
