A 28-year-old man from Leiden who reported to the police station two weeks ago after a conviction for kidnapping and manslaughter, was sent by the police. The man was arrested a day later.

The convicted man reported to the police on July 19 after being sentenced to 13.5 years in prison on kidnapping and manslaughter on appeal. The man was previously acquitted by the court.

However, the convict was not registered nationally and was therefore not recognized in the system. The police therefore sent him away. The police and the Public Prosecution Service have not yet been able to tell how it is possible that the convicted person was not registered.

The next day, the man was arrested together with the other convicted person in the case by the EVA team (Execution Sentences Punished) of the police in The Hague.

Kidnapping and manslaughter in 2014

The 28-year-old man was convicted of the kidnapping and manslaughter of a Leiden citizen on September 3, 2014. Another suspect was sentenced to 22 months in prison for aiding the kidnapping.

The man who was sentenced to 13.5 years in prison shot the victim dead when he tried to flee. It is unknown why the victim was kidnapped.

In addition to the unconditional prison sentence, the man must compensate the material damage resulting from the death of the Leiden citizen. He also owes the victim's widow compensation for non-material damage.
