Corruption case against De Mos started
The criminal case has started in Rotterdam against the former alderman of The Hague Richard de Mos and seven others. They are suspected of forming criminal organizations, official corruption and violation of professional secrecy. Justice thinks that three real estate and two catering entrepreneurs have had a preferential position in exchange for donations to De Mos’s party. News reporter Gert Jansen follows the case and joins the studio.
