On Friday, the Public Prosecution Service (OM) demanded twenty years in prison and TBS with compulsory treatment against Rahiied A. on suspicion of committing four murders and seven attempts to do so. The man (23) struck by delivering insulin to his victims in four care institutions where he worked as a carer.
In one case, according to the OM, it was not an attempt at murder, but an attempt at manslaughter.
The officer pointed out that A. "repeatedly" made victims, seeing the consequences of injecting the drug.
A. is also accused of putting all victims in a helpless state. These were mostly people with dementia who were unable to get help.
He is also deemed guilty of stealing medicines and forging a Certificate of Good Behavior (VOG).
Taking into account expert advice
The public prosecutor said in his criminal claim that he had taken into account the advice of experts who concluded that A. should be regarded as greatly reduced.
A. had a very difficult childhood in which he was mistreated by both his father and his mother's new friend. A post-traumatic stress disorder and a personality disorder have been diagnosed with the suspect.
Because, according to the same experts, the chance of recurrence is high, tbs with compulsory treatment are also required.
82What is tbs exactly?
Low blood sugar levels led to a declaration
According to the OM, between June 2016 and November 2017, A. administered insulin to at least eleven people without a medical necessity. Four of them died as a result.
In November 2017, when a woman had low blood sugar levels for inexplicable reasons, the nursing home in Puttershoek began to doubt A..
A. worked in the nursing home as part of his education. The woman became unwell during one of his services. Once she was admitted to hospital, the staff there concluded that the woman had been given insulin.
When it came to light that a woman had died shortly before in the same care home for inexplicable reason, a report was filed against A. The two-year investigation resulted in this criminal case.
In the investigation, the bodies of three of the victims were dug up to perform another section.
A. saw himself as a doctor and wanted to 'live out fantasy'
"The man did not control his imagination," the officer said. "He needed to shake up his self-image and physician dynamics was always his motive," referring to A.'s fantasy that he was a doctor.
A. often carried a stethoscope with him during his work and wanted to show that he could work under pressure. He would have given insulin to his victims so that he could intervene and receive compliments for that.
"Rahiied saw his work as a playground where he could live out his fantasy as a doctor," the officer said. "He not only touched the relatives, but also all the people who work in healthcare."
The accused invokes his right to remain silent
A. has so far invoked his right to remain silent. In some cases, he said he was innocent. One incident would also be a mistake as a result of a change of person.
The defense will speak on Monday. When the verdict is, is not yet known.
