The Public Prosecution Service demanded 26 years in prison on Tuesday against a cousin of Ridouan Taghi for involvement in the murder of lawyer Derk Wiersum. He is said to have helped prepare the murder.
The Public Prosecution Service (OM) is demanding a prison sentence of 26 years and 8 months against Anouar T., a cousin of Ridouan Taghi, for his role in preparing the attack on lawyer Derk Wiersum. NOS reported this on Tuesday afternoon.
Prison sentences ranging from 3 to 18 years have been demanded against six other suspects.
In a previous criminal case, information emerged about the origin of the stolen cars used by those who carried out the murder, which were linked to, among others, Anouar Taghi, who was said to have headed a criminal organization that sold stolen vehicles.
But according to the Public Prosecution Service, Taghi also provided assistance to the executors in other ways.
Anouar Taghi is said to have carried out reconnaissance at Wiersum’s home and office and arranged for cars with false license plates.
Derk Wiersum was the lawyer of Nabil B., the key witness in the case against Ridouan Taghi, in the Marengo case. He was killed on September 18, 2019. The two perpetrators of the murder were sentenced to another 30 years in prison earlier this year, on appeal.
