Shortly after midnight on January 10, the minister’s daughter received a message via Instagram with the text “I’m gonna kill your father.” After an investigation, the police came to the man from Boxtel, who made a confession during his interrogation. He is said to have sent the message in a drunken mood while he was with friends. He has now apologized to the minister and his daughter.
“It is a very serious fact that is of great concern to us. The impact of such a threat is certainly enormous for someone of thirteen years old. ”, The prosecutor said in court on Monday. “He has seriously infringed the privacy of the minister and his daughter. They both felt seriously threatened. ”
The suspect has crossed a border as far as the Public Prosecution is concerned. “Everyone is free to comment on the policy and actions of this minister. It is important in a democratic constitutional state that politicians can do their work in freedom and security. Threats and intimidation, as the suspect has done, are detrimental to that freedom and security. “
The magistrate only convicted the suspect for threatening the minister. She acquitted the suspect for threatening De Jong’s daughter.
