Family deceased Ossenaar Arie den Dekker files a complaint against the mayor

The family of the man who set himself on fire in front of the town hall in Oss files a complaint against mayor Wobine Buijs of that place, confirms the family’s lawyer after being reported by the Brabants Dagblad. The children of Arie den Dekker think that the mayor is partly responsible for the death of their father.

For years at odds with Oss

<54-year-old Den Dekker committed suicide at the end of July. He felt abandoned by the municipality and the justice system, because he was not given accommodation for himself and his dogs.

The mayor said earlier that she does not have the ability to allocate housing. “Otherwise, I’ll have thirty people on my doorstep tomorrow, and a lot of houses are needed, so I can’t.”

There’s an investigation going on into how the authorities handled Den Dekker.
