On Saturday, the police reported that ‘only’ three people had been hit by a bullet. The number four was also communicated at the time, but it was later withdrawn because there was a misunderstanding. The number four reappeared a day later, this time in a statement from the Public Prosecution Service.
“It now seems that four people have been hit by bullets,” the Public Prosecution Service said at the time. The victim who came in tonight brings the number to five. The National Criminal Investigation Department is investigating whether the victims were hit by police bullets. The police were forced to shoot after a demonstration against the announced corona measures got completely out of hand.
The mayor of Rotterdam Ahmed Aboutaleb previously showed in the RTL4 program Jinek know that the injured persons are not in mortal danger. He relies on information from the hospitals. Several people were injured, including officers. 49 people were arrested on the night itself.
