Taghi’s lawyer Inez Weski had asked for the doors to be closed in making her requests. The privacy of her client is the reason for this, according to the counsel. The 42-year-old Taghi is the main suspect in the large liquidation process Marengo. The Public Prosecution Service has unsuccessfully opposed the closing of the doors.
Weski’s requests are related to his transfer, but she made no further explanation. Taghi was arrested in Dubai in December after being a fugitive for years. His transport to the Netherlands would have been accompanied by the necessary violence. A few days later he was taken to the Netherlands by special transport. Since then he has been on remand in the extra security prison in Vught.
A total of seventeen suspects are on trial in Marengo. From Tuesday, an interim hearing round will take place in the extra secure courtroom at Schiphol. Taghi is not present in person. He also did not appear in court at previous hearings this year.
