Former professional footballer Bryan Roy has been sentenced by the police judge in The Hague to an 80-hour community service for threatening demissionary Prime Minister Mark Rutte. If he goes wrong again within two years, there will be a four-week prison sentence.
51-year-old Roy had responded to a tweet in April calling on the Prime Minister to resign. “Headshot will get him soon,” was his reaction. Because a report was made, police picked Roy up for questioning shortly after the message.
The Public Prosecutor‘s Office had demanded a ten-week prison sentence, four weeks of which was parole.

Roy, who came out 32 times for Orange in his career, also fell into disagreement last year after a threat from AD journalist Chris Klomp, because of his pieces in which corona plots are debunked. “I know where you live now,” he wrote. “We sleep at night, just you don’t.”
This case was dismissed by the prosecution. Minister Grapperhaus said at the time after criticism that “things are not going the way I would like now”.
