Commissioner too open about Holleeder

Outrage has erupted within the judiciary and among defence lawyers over comments from Commissioner John Olierook from the national detectives unit. Speaking to weekly newspaper 'Vrij Nederland' Olierook says top criminal Willem Holleeder should get at least 16 years jail and speaks about a conflict between police and the judiciary that took place on the day of Holleeder's arrest. Olierook leads the investigation into blackmail crimes allegedly carried out by the group around Holleeder.

(Olierook was later placed on non-active duties)
