Interview with the Deputy Director of EUROPOL, Operations Department
In the exclusive interview series, this time we have the occasion of getting a glimpse inside of the European Union’s Law-Enforcement Agency, and the honour of an interview with Mr Wil van Gemert, Deputy Director of EUROPOL the Operations Department.
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.
