Dr. E.D. Tromp with regard to appeal by the Public Prosecution Service

Through the media, Emsley Tromp has learned today that the Public Prosecution Service is not yet resigned to the integral acquittal of the General Court of 17 November. Afterwards, this has been confirmed by the Public Prosecution Service. Given the content of the very detailed and well-motivated verdict, this decision is surprising. It is regrettable that the judgment of the judge did not bring the Public Prosecution Service to any new understanding of its own course of action. A practice that has caused irreparable damage to Tromps’ reputation over the last year and a half.

Tromp has already noted several times in the past that he looks forward to the outcome of this procedure with full confidence. In view of the judgment of the Court of First Instance, this confidence is also fully justified.
