The fatal mistreatment of a 73-year-old man in Arnhem is the result of a ‘pedo hunt’. That says lawyer Jamil Roethof, who assists a 15-year-old suspect in the case, against De Gelderlander. The NOS has not yet been able to reach him.
Retired teacher Jan Kruitwagen was severely beaten on the street in Arnhem two weeks ago. He was taken to hospital and there died of his injuries. One day after the abuse, five youngsters were arrested, the next day two more minors. Four suspects are still in custody.
The lawyer tells De Gelderlander that the man is a random victim. He is said to have responded to a call on a chat room for homosexuals to have sexual contact with a boy of 15. In reality, that call was made by the suspicious teenagers, who, according to Roethof, were inspired by all the stories about the pedo-hunting phenomenon.
“They followed him to his home that Wednesday evening and wanted to confront him with the fact that he wanted to have sex with an underage boy. That’s all,” says the lawyer in the regional newspaper. “Then it got out of hand. The victim also fell unluckily. I don’t think there was a preconceived plan to abuse him.”
Boredom in corona time
The lawyer also says in the newspaper that the idea of hunting pedophiles came out of “boredom in this corona time”. “My client got carried away. He was involved in the chat appointment, but did not participate in the abuse. He was present when the victim came to the appointment and they spoke to him about it.”
The police are investigating the case with 25 detectives. This weekend the victim was commemorated with 2 minutes of silence.
