Death of Aruban in The Hague not an ‘incident’


This is a video from the Zuiderpark in The Hague in the Netherlands, showing the lethal arrest of Aruban Mitch Henriquez at the hands of police.

Translated from an NOS TV interview today in the Netherlands with Glenn Helberg, chair of the organisation of Caribbean people in the Netherlands, about the death of Mitch Henriquez at the hands of the The Hague police (as the Dutch government admitted today):

Helberg is happy for the family [of Mr Henriquez] that clarity came so soon. “This helps them immensely in the handling of their grief.”

He also said that this death is not an isolated incident and should not be called so by the police. “There is something very wrong when people feel unprotected by the police. It is now time for soul searching by the police.” …

Furthermore Arubans [on Aruba island, interviewed by the local NOS correspondent] hope that for the officers involved, if they would be found to be actually guilty, there will be no impunity.
