Police end illegal ‘corona parties’, several fines handed out | NOW

In a number of places in the Netherlands, the police have put an end to illegal parties that were mainly attended by young people. In Dordrecht and Angerlo in Gelderland, many more people came together on Friday than is allowed under the current corona measures.

On Friday evening, after a tip via Meld Misdaad Anoniem, police put an end to an illegal party in Angerlo near Doesburg. The approximately twenty young people at the party have been fined. “We managed to prevent it from becoming a bigger party and will keep an eye on the location for the coming hours.” The exact location is not said by the police.

In Dordrecht, 19 young people received a voucher who had come together at a skating rink under the Zwijndrecht bridge. They were guilty of gathering, drinking alcohol on the street and urinating in public, according to the police.

Due to the corona virus, the police have recently been extra vigilant about illegal parties and other activities where many people gather. Most infections take place at parties and family gatherings. The number of visitors that we are allowed to receive at home (indoors and outdoors) has therefore been reduced to three people per day, excluding children under 13 years of age.

On Wednesday, the police in Rotterdam fined eleven men and women between the ages of 20 and 22, who did not care about the corona measures. They were partying in a house on the Achterharingvliet. Neighbors had complained about loud music. The sound system was included because agents at the same address should have intervened earlier in the week due to noise nuisance.
