TV Search for Criminals does not mention Anti-Semitic nature of Violent Robbery

The Dutch TV program Opsporing Verzocht has called for help in finding the attackers of an elderly Dutch Jewish couple in their mid-eighties.  The content of the program is determined by the state prosecutor’s office.  The assailants beat both victims severely in the process of the robbery, calling them “dirty Jews.”  Both are now confined to wheelchairs.  The program, however, omitted any mention of the anti-Semitic nature of the attack.  At the time, the victims had also said that the attackers appeared to be "Arabic-Moroccan."
