The Netherlands on Protecting the Law-Enforcement on the Close-Combat

The Netherlands is taking a new measure that should protect the Law-Enforcement during all categories of Close-Combat, inter alia…… civil unrest and social violence.  An important step that has to be followed by other European States equally.

Police officers will no longer automatically be labelled as suspects during inquiries into the use of force.   A factual investigation, based on the assumption of lawful conduct, will be conducted instead. This is the core of a legislative proposal from State Secretary Van der Steur (Security and Justice) sent to various bodies such as the Council for the Judiciary and the Public Prosecution Service (OM) for advice.  May  3 2016 © Dutch Government
