The court in Amsterdam has the Public Prosecution Service (OM)
Tuesday was ordered to clarify the observation of lawyers in the search for Ridouan T. The request to hear witnesses about the shadow action has been rejected.

Several lawyers in the Marengo trial had asked for further investigation after it became known that Nico Meijering and colleague Leon van Kleef were followed in June 2019 in the Netherlands and Dubai.

Information would have been received by the judiciary that Meijering had an appointment with the then wanted worldwide T. This turned out not to be the case.

The court announced that it would expect at least a detailed description of “what exactly was asked of the Dubai authorities, what information was shared with Dubai and how Dubai has implemented this”.

The court also wants to know whether similar means of investigation have been used against other lawyers.

The court has announced that it does not want to draw any conclusions as to whether the shadow action has crossed borders and whether consequences should be attached to it. “This will undoubtedly be addressed at a later stage,” the court said.

OM should not have mentioned names of lawyers

The court also considered the preparation of an official report about the alleged passing on of secret information by various lawyers to the criminal organization of T. According to the court it was unnecessary to mention the names of the counsel who may be guilty of this. have made.

“After all, it was not the Public Prosecution Service to do the lawyers’ actions,” said the judge. “That is why a different, less damaging way of reporting could have been chosen.”

“The Public Prosecution should have realized that there was a risk of harmful reports in the press and that it would be extremely difficult for these lawyers to fight against this,” the court continues.

The court does not assume that this is a deliberate action.
