The municipality of Brunssum has issued an emergency ordinance for the area in Brunssummerheide where Monday an inspection is being carried out in the case that revolves around the death of Nicky Verstappen. This means that no one is allowed to enter the area.
The area is closed on Monday at 6 pm and remains inaccessible for 24 hours. Whoever is within the area, will be dismissed by the police.
The judges in the case, together with the prosecutors, the lawyer of Jos B. and the suspect himself, will visit the most important places on Brunssummerheide under the supervision of agents.
This is, among other things, the place where the body of the 11-year-old boy was found in 1998.
Justice thinks it may be of value to show the court where the eleven-year-old boy was at the time, what the distance to the summer camp where he was staying and where B. was held up by agents that summer.
Residents of Brunssummerheide received a letter on Tuesday with information about the chimney and the fence. There is a non-substantive hearing in the case on Tuesday. This session is public.

Jos B. has put a statement on paper
Earlier it became clear that B., who denies involvement in the boy's death, has put a statement on paper. He has not yet read this text. It is unknown when he will do this.
A total of 21 DNA traces of the suspect were found on Verstappen's clothing. The vast majority were on the boy's underpants. Thanks to these traces, B. could be arrested after a manhunt in Spain.
The substantive treatment will only take place in 2020.
