On November 4th 2016, the first trial session took place against the anarchist arrested in Amsterdam accused by the prosecution of Aachen of a bank robbery (from 2013).
Although there was an abundant presence of cops of all functions and uniforms at the courthouse (riot police in the courtyard and inside the building, an ID check of anyone attending the court case, cops controlling some people on the streets), over 30 friends and comrades were present in support.
There was a banner outside the court building which demanded the comrade’s immediate release.
The session lasted no longer than one hour – just a few formalities, the reading of the charges and the arranging of the trial schedule.
The next date is Thursday 17th November at 10:30. We remind everyone who wants to be present that they should arrive to the courtroom no later than 09:45, as getting through security takes quite some time.
