Former top football player Bryan Roy has kept his word. The 52-year-old ex-international did not care about the calls to carry out the community service that he received for threatening Mark Rutte, but has since been arrested to serve the alternative 40 days in prison.
Roy had to prevent in September last year because he had posted a tweet in April of the same year in which he suggested that Rutte would get a ‘headshot’. Although that is, among other things, a term from photography (kind of portrait photo), the Public Prosecution Service is sure that Roy meant that Rutte should be shot.
Roy admitted to having posted the tweet to police “because he is fighting for the children who are being abused.” Roy further told the officers who interrogated him that this is partly Rutte’s fault and that the prime minister must appear before a tribunal.
‘Rutte can cut community service in seam’
The former professional football player of Ajax, Nottingham Forest and Orange (32 international matches) was sentenced to 80 hours of community service. He completely ignored the lawsuit: didn’t show up and didn’t send a lawyer. A day later he tweeted again that ‘Rutte can push the community service into his seam’, showing that he did not comply with the imposed sentence.
Roy kept his word. He has been arrested to serve his prison sentence. For every two hours of community service that he does not, there is formally one day in prison. Roy therefore has to sit for 40 days. The CJIB competent for the execution of the sentence does not say when exactly Roy was arrested and how long Roy has been or has been in prison. The CJIB does not make any substantive statements about the case. Since April 19, he has in any case nothing more to hear on his twitter account.
