AMSTERDAM — Weblog zeikerdje.com was taken offline over the weekend after it was threatened following the release of a video showing a 19-year-old man having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

The sex video involving the 19-year-old Michael B., of Almere, and the teen girl, identified as Michelle, was placed on several weblogs last week.

But both B. and the girl's father are alleged to have threatened the weblogs. A bottle was thrown through the window of the owner of the Zeikerdje website.

Telephone threats were also placed against the backers of the website jaggle.nl warning of more extreme actions, newspaper De Telegraaf reported on Monday. 

The host of Zeikerdje subsequently hauled the weblog offline as a precautionary measure, but jaggle.nl is still online.

Both websites have placed official reports with police.

Sex between an adult and a youth aged between 16 and 18 in the Netherlands is only prosecutable if there are indications of force. Prosecutors will assess a case more rigorously if the adult is much older than the teen. 

Teenagers may not pose in pornographic photos or videos or work in the sex industry as prostitute until the age of 18.
