4 years on appeal for former policeman Xavier de Windt in airport shooting case
WILLEMSTAD - The Court of Appeal today, Thursday, April 28, 2016, ruled in the case against former police officer Xavier de Windt (1986).
He was sentenced by the Court to four years in prison and 10 years disqualification from being a police officer. De Windt himself was not physically present in the courtroom, but was able to follow the verdict via video conference from the Netherlands where he is currently detained.
De Windt has intentionally facilitated, according to the Court, information that led to the death of two people on July 15, 2014 during a shooting at Hato Airport. In this case the former police officer was accused (to say the least) of premeditated misuse.
By providing information the rival gang members knew that Djais Juliana and Champi Arnhem on the day in question would arrive from Germany at the Hato airport
In this case he is convicted of violating his official secrecy. Finally, the defendant, then employed by the police, embezzled, during his service, two police radios.
