Football hooligans protect cities: "Sympathetic, but unnecessary"

A trend on the fourth day of the curfew in the Netherlands: the supply of supporter groups of local football clubs to help the police to defend inner cities. A sympathetic offer, but unnecessary, according to the police. "The curfew applies to everyone." MVV supporters scouring the street in Maastricht, FC Den Bosch fans handing out vests in Breda and fans of Willem II who offer their help to the police in Tilburg. The message that comes from many supporters of football clubs is clear: demonstrations are fine, but riots are not and otherwise we help to protect our cities. The roles have sometimes been different. Mayor Emile Roemer called it an "extremely positive signal" that the hard core of AZ announced that it would protect the center of Alkmaar. Vests On images on the internet it even seemed as if the police in Den Bosch were handing out vests to football supporters. It turned out not to be. “We are in the neighborhood and we are there”, emphasizes a spokesperson for the East Brabant police. “And we really appreciate the fact that citizen participation movements are currently unfolding. But we don't hand out the vests ourselves. ” The group, which would consist of supporters of FC Den Bosch, also just has to go home when the curfew starts. “As much as we appreciate the initiative, the curfew applies to everyone, and we will ensure a dignified end to the aid offer. As much as we appreciate it, we will monitor it. "No need for help from these groups." Other police forces involved in the issue (Zeeland-West Brabant, Limburg and Noord-Holland, for example) all pointed to the police force. A spokesman for that was clear. "There is just a curfew and it applies to everyone," said the spokesman. “We are not in favor of individual direction anyway. We can really handle it as a police force and we don't need the help of these groups, no matter how well-intentioned. A temporary suspension of a curfew for these groups is not possible, the spokesperson emphasizes. “That would also complicate enforcement. We are not going to do this. ” Not a good sign Safety expert Michiel de Weger also thinks it is "not a desirable situation". "As long as they do not use violence, do not threaten and cooperate with the police, it is of course allowed outside curfew times," he explains. “But then they have to. You may defend your home and your shop within the law. But when such a group walks through the city center, it can of course come across as threatening. " According to De Weger it is "not a good sign" that the impression exists that the police need the help of these groups. "In general, the police can still handle it, but the question is what it says about the trust in it."

143 arrests in riots in Amsterdam: "Some protesters wore fighting gloves"

The police arrested 143 people on Sunday during a spontaneous demonstration on Museumplein that was not allowed. Fifteen of them are suspected of open assault and the rest for deliberate disregard of an order. The fifteen detainees were still detained during the night from Sunday to Monday. Earlier this week, the municipality of Amsterdam had banned the demonstration against the government on Museumplein. The event was allowed to take place in the Westerpark. But the initiators decided against it. The illegal demonstration quickly got out of hand. Action was necessary, according to the municipality, "because of public health, major concerns about the spread of the corona virus and a threat of public order disruption". Because some did not follow the directions, the ME carried out charges, including with a water cannon. Among the protesters was a group of 200 to 250 people who "clearly wanted a confrontation". “Stones were taken from the street and thrown at officers. Some also carried fighting gloves, melee weapons and fireworks. ""

Up to four years in prison for Feyenoord hooligans because of riots in Rome

Six Feyenoord hooligans have been sentenced in absentia to four years by the court in Rome over riots that took place in the historic center of the Italian capital in 2015. The riots took place around the Europa League match with AS Roma in February 2015. According to the court, the six were guilty of sedition, public violence and resistance against agents. The six supporters also have to pay 3,000 euros in damages to retailers and local residents. The six suspects convicted in absentia were missing from the session in Rome on Thursday. Their lawyer reports to the AD that the six are currently “untraceable” and says that the supporters are appealing. If it actually comes to a prison sentence, the fans can serve that sentence in the Netherlands.

Rogier threw a beer bottle at the Feyenoord riots in Rome: 'This is enormously blown up'

The Roman Empire seemed to have almost collapsed again, on February 19, 2015. Feyenoord supporters, portrayed as "barbarians" in Italian newspapers, are said to have inflicted enormous damage on the city in a confrontation with the police. A total of 44 supporters were convicted, on December 11, 2015 in Rotterdam. Now, exactly five years later, one of them tells his story. "It was about nothing." Rogier: “I was almost at the back and was afraid that I would be hit by the police. I had another bottle of beer in my hands and in a split second I decided to throw it. With a piss arch. The powerlessness at such a moment, indescribable. You see people behind you being beaten up for no reason. I can not stand injustice." We look together at the images he still has on his laptop. A head that blends into the crowd. “Look, this is where it happens. I don't even know if I hit anyone. ” But he still did not give himself a role in it. “Until I was called after four weeks: I was on the internet with a photo. I thought, is that why ...? Has more happened then? But no, it turned out to be that one beer bottle. ”

Prison sentences for up to three years for riots after promotion match Antwerp.

The public prosecutor in Belgium on Friday demanded prison sentences of up to 3 years for the 42 people who started a riot in 2016 near the Bosuil Stadium after the football match between Antwerp and Eupen. The hooligans also risk up to 10 years of stadium bans and fines. Antwerp played a draw against Eupen in April 2016 and was therefore not allowed to play in the first division. For the Antwerp supporters, that was a bitter pill to swallow. After the match, they stormed the field and some of them got into the visitors' box. The section was quickly cleared and the water cannon was used to push back the Antwerp hooligans. They worked their frustrations out on the police, who were present in large numbers around the Bosuil Stadium. Various groups of supporters attacked the police with traffic signs, cobblestones, after-dart gates and even a torn tree. A combination was set on fire with Bengal fire.

Presumably they are hooligans of Arminia and FC Groningen who have come to blows.

'Ajax hooligans were offered AK47s from Amsterdam underworld after battle in Beverwijk'

In 1997 a big battle took place in a meadow near Beverwijk between hooligans from Ajax and Feyenoord. Ajax fan Carlo Picornie was killed in the riots. The hard core of the Amsterdammers later received a bizarre offer from a few Amsterdam criminals. The book 'Utrecht Hooligans', written by Evert van der Zouw and Daniel M van Doorn, states that members of the F-Side were offered AK-47s after the riots in 1997 by Sam Klepper and John Mieremet, leading figures from the Amsterdam underworld . This would allow the Amsterdam hooligans to 'equalize' the score again.
