The two men suspected of distributing Patricia Paay's pee sex video receive a one-month suspended jail sentence and a 50-hour suspended sentence of community service.

That became clear in the court of Noord-Holland on Thursday.

Two weeks ago, the public prosecutor demanded a month's imprisonment against Michel V., two weeks of which was suspended, plus a fine of 250 euros.

This has become a one-month suspended prison sentence.

Ernst van der S. was sentenced to eighty hours of community service and a fine of 200 euros.

This community service order has now become conditional.

The fine has lapsed for both men.

The court finds that both men insulted Paay and the man in the video.

It is also taken into account that the presenter is known.

As a result, she has been recognized by many people in the video and the interest in the images is also much greater, according to the explanation of the verdict.

Both men denied knowing the television personality was featured in the video when they shared the video on Twitter.

According to the OM, there was indeed intent, because they used the hashtag #paayunplugged when sharing the video.

There is also copyright infringement, because the distributors did not make the video themselves and did not receive permission to post it.

Both V. and Van der S. have been acquitted of defamation.

and V. must pay damages of 30,000 euros because the TV personality and former singer suffered immaterial damage due to the distribution of the film.

The amount was much lower than the 450,000 euros she had demanded.

Paay sued the website after a link to one of the leaked sex videos was shared by twitterer Eendevanger in February 2017 and then





The court has now ruled that


and the twitterer have acted unlawfully.

The images were distributed without Paay's permission.
