The Public Prosecution Service does not prosecute anyone for leaking information from a private meeting about the new acting mayor of The Hague.
According to the Public Prosecution Service, there is insufficient evidence to show who made recordings in the meeting and who provided them to the media, writes Broadcaster West.
The conversation between the group chairmen and the South Holland Commissioner of King Jaap Smit on October 7, 2019 was secretly recorded. In the conversation it became clear that Johan Remkes would become acting mayor of The Hague.
Omroep West received the audio recordings and published the presentation by Remkes two days later. The board of the city council of The Hague reported the leakage of the information.
