The Public Prosecution Service is prosecuting three men and a company in the Eersel ayahuasca case. After a session with the hallucinogenic drink in April last year, a 31-year-old Hungarian was killed. Yet a connection between his death and ayahuasca cannot be demonstrated, which is why the Public Prosecution Service is now only focusing on the possession of the prohibited substance in ayahuasca.
Last year, several suspects were arrested in a house in Eersel shortly after the session. That house turned out to be an international venue for ayahuasca sessions.
The 31-year-old Hungarian was also present at such a session. On March 3 he was found dead at the bottom of a flat in Eindhoven. However, research shows that a connection between the session and the death of the man cannot be established.
Ayahuasca is a drink that is drunk as a kind of tea and that makes you hallucinate. Its use involves major risks. Addiction care institution Jellinek previously warned against this, that people can develop psychiatric problems, especially if they are already feeling unwell. Within the ayahuasca community there was also criticism of the organization in Eersel: In 2015, a hundred international anthroposophists and ayahuasca experts already warned against the company.
The active ingredient of ayahuasca is the banned substance dimethyltryptamine (DMT), which is seen as a hard drug in the Netherlands. This substance was also found in the blood of the man from Hungary, but the Netherlands Forensic Institute (NFI) eventually determined that it had probably already worn off by the time the man died. The arrested persons are therefore not prosecuted for culpable death, but for possession of ayahuasca.
