The doctor from The Hague who was stabbed on Tuesday is still in the ICU in the hospital where he is being treated. General practitioners’ organization Hadoks says in a statement on the site that they are ‘extremely shocked and very moved’. They sympathize with their injured colleague. “Violence against aid and care providers should never happen and is unacceptable at all times.”
The wounded GP would be an observer. A spokesperson tells Omroep West: “It has a lot of impact, initially on the victim and his family, but also on the employees of the practice.”
The incident of violence against the doctor in GP practice Zuiderparken Huisartsen took place during the day on Tuesday. A 38-year-old suspect was arrested with the help of bystanders. According to De Telegraaf, it would be a confused man from The Hague. The examining magistrate will decide on Friday whether his pre-trial detention will be extended.
