A teacher from Emmaus College in Rotterdam has been threatened because of a cartoon that hung in one of the classrooms, the police reported. “The police and the Public Prosecution Service take the threats very seriously. It is currently being investigated who is behind the threats.”
The police inform Rijnmond that they are in close contact with the school. “We are taking visible and invisible measures to stop these threats.” Among other things, there is extra supervision at the school.
According to the police, the threats have been made online. It is not known exactly how many threats are involved.
A letter from the school management has been published on GeenStijl. In it the school writes that there has been a fuss about a cartoon that hung in a classroom. It was there because the school paid attention to the murder of the French teacher Samuel Paty yesterday. In mid-October, he was beheaded by an extremist Muslim for showing cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in one of his lessons, in a lesson on freedom of speech.
“A photo taken of the cartoon has been posted on Instagram and is going viral,” the letter said. “In the photo, the context in which the cartoon hangs has completely disappeared. As a result, threats have been made towards colleagues. We find these threats unacceptable.”
It is said to be a cartoon of Joep Bertrams, the winner of the Inktspotprijs in 2015. The cartoon is about the attack on Charlie Hebdo.
The school says it is shocked by the commotion and is in consultation with the police and the School & Safety Foundation. “We make every effort to ensure that our school remains a safe place for everyone, so that the pupils can go to school in peace and quiet tomorrow.”
