The court in Leeuwarden Friday handed down sentences for "freshness". They were ordered to block black pete opponents in the A7 around Sinterklaas last year. The court at Leeuwarden Friday handed penalties to block the opponents of Zwarte Piet on the A7 around the Sinterklaas match last year.
Among the accused are Jenny Douwes, who, due to her co-ordinating role, received the highest social service of 240 hours and a conditional prison sentence of one month. The court considers that it has been proven that it has requested exclusion on the highway to stop the protesters against Zwarte Piet, but not that they have requested the use of force. Two people also received one month suspension of the prison sentence because they had stopped and stopped on A6 buses. Some strongly sympathized with the verdict.

Lawyer Tjalling van der Goot, who assists 33 of 34 Frisian "exclusions", including figure Jenny Douwes, is disappointed with the court verdict in Leeuwarden. It does not rule out the appeal.
The bulk was imposed on Friday at a 120-hour Community service. Those who had a larger coordinating role were sentenced to 180 to 200 hours. "The poor labor sentences," says Van der Goot, "My clients have been acquitted to prevent a demonstration, the center of gravity in this case before the Prosecutor's Office, but I do not hear that from the verdict."
