OM starts with anonymous tip line to report firearms

Public ProsecutionWILLEMSTAD - The Public Prosecutor (OM) has launched an anonymous hotline for those who know who has an illegal firearm. If a person knows then they can call to report. If a weapon is indeed found at the specified location, the person who reported it can look forward to a reward of between 350 to a 1000 guilders.

The amount of the payment depends on the weight of the firearm. The anonymous hotline of the Public Ministry is 0800-TA BASTA (0800-8222782). The anonymity of the person who called is guaranteed.

On August 31, the punishment for owners of illegal firearms will be increased. Until that date, people can still drop off their illegal firearm at The Temple in Punda, without persecution. They will receive a reward of 100 guilders for their weapon.
