Several organizations at the Mediapark in Hilversum asked their employees to go home on Tuesday in connection with the threat of riots.

According to a spokesperson for the municipality, the NOS, the EO and BNNVARA have called for this.

The spokesperson emphasizes that the Mediapark will not be evacuated and will therefore not be closed for the time being.

The broadcasters themselves have decided to send staff home.

The reason is messages circulating on social media to start rioting at the Mediapark.

The EO also advised colleagues present around 4.30 pm "who are often in the building until about 6 pm, to go home earlier if it is not very important to be in the office," said a spokesman.

"There are a few things circulating on social media, so we have been on the safe side."
