Dutch Authorities Punish Those Behind Acts Of Vandalism Against Moroccan Consulates
Amsterdam, Oct 20 (TNA) The Dutch justice system has sentenced the perpetrators of vandalism perpetrated last January and March in the Moroccan consulates general in Utrecht and Den Bosch.
According to Dutch judicial sources, this seven-day deprivation of liberty, pronounced against two individuals who committed these serious acts in violation of the Vienna Convention on the Inviolability of Diplomatic Posts, is accompanied by an obligation not to approach the two consular representations for a period of two years.
It should be noted that this is a case between the Dutch public prosecutor and the two individuals, the same sources specify. The judge, aware of the seriousness of the offences committed, condemned the illegal acts perpetrated by these two individuals affecting Moroccan consular representations and the nation's emblems.
He also said that the work of the two consulates should resume its normal course in order to respond to the requests of the Moroccan community with confidence. The Dutch Public Prosecutor's Office, which considers that the seriousness of the acts committed requires heavier penalties, will appeal this decision, add the same sources.
