The National Police does not consider it appropriate for members of police units in the three major cities to congratulate William Engel from the truth virus. In the emergency appeal at The Hague, Engel said this afternoon that the Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Hague police congratulated him on the court’s decision in The Hague this morning. In a case brought by Virus Truth, the curfew should be lifted.
“The police find it important to be in contact with as many groups of society as possible,” the National Police said. “The police respect the court’s decision, but do not consider the congratulations here. There is still a health crisis and we are continuing to work to prevent the spread of the virus,” he added.
Police in The Hague say a police officer called Engel from his position and congratulated him in his personal capacity. The Hague unit maintains that this is not the position of the police.
Police in Rotterdam confirmed a call. “The police are always looking for contact with residents and especially with the main characters. We have appointed many people who stay in touch with Mr. Engel in both good times and bad times. Congratulations have been moved from a neutral location because the connection has to be kept warm. That says nothing about him.” What we think of it is like the police. If Mr. Engel does what is not allowed, there is communication about it, but also if he is personally successful, then there is a connection. “
