A man in Goes (Zeeland) was assaulted Saturday night, possibly by so-called pedo hunters. Thats what the police have spoken to several witnesses.
The victim was beaten up in the street and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. Exactly what happened is being investigated.
Earlier this week it emerged that the death of a 73-year-old Arnhemmer seems to be the result of pedo hunters, citizens looking for men who want to meet with minors.
Police and justice have already called on people to stop hunting child abusers and to abide by the law. Justice Minister Ferd Grapperhaus stated that it is absolutely not the intention for people to take matters into their own hands when someone does something that is forbidden. “Then you go to the police with it,” was his message. He thinks its ridiculous that the verb “pedo hunting” has become a notion: “We dont live in a cowboy society.”
