Virus truth leader Willem Engel must go to court for sedition | Inland

Willem Engel, the leader of the Virus Truth action group, has to go to court next week on suspicion of incitement. He also failed to comply with the order to end a demonstration on October 10 in The Hague.




Engel must appear before the police judge in The Hague next Tuesday. The Public Prosecution Service states that he has been guilty of incitement via facebook. On October 10 last year he wrote there: “Yes, then maybe we should put officers under civilian arrest, because this ehhh because they are now taking hostage.”

Unannounced demonstration

The Rotterdam leader of Viruswaarheid, an action group against the government’s corona policy, was arrested on that day during an unannounced protest on Het Plein in The Hague. A group of protesters were then trapped and detained by the police. Engel was one of them, he reported on facebook.

The Public Prosecution Service also charges him with not complying with the order of the mayor of The Hague to end the demonstration. Engel was then already banned from The Hague for ten days.
