Well-known Prosecutor Needs Heavy Protection

Koos Plooij, the Netherlands’ best known public prosecutor. has been given round-the-clock protection, after intelligence information showed that his life was in danger. He travels only in armored cars. He arrived at the court in Haarlem with five security guards wearing bullet proof jackets. Plooij had been seriously threatened already a few years ago. At that time the Justice Department had information that Yugoslav criminals wanted to kill him. This time there is no indication of who is behind the threats.
