Monday 17 June 2013
Six teenagers and a 51-year-old man have been jailed for their role in the death of a football linesman who was kicked by a mob after a youth game in Almere last December.
The court in Lelystad ruled ‘tough sentences’ were merited for all the defendents because of the nature of the crime. Only three of the youths were in court to hear the sentences.
El-Hasan D, 51, was jailed for six years while his son Yassine, 16, was given 12 months in juvenile detention, two suspended.
The other suspects, aged 16, 17 and 18, were given 24-month sentences, six suspended for their parts in the attack. The youngest defendent, Daveryon B, 15, was given 30 days in youth custody, 17 days suspended. He was only guilty of attacking the keeper, the court found.
