Thirty tips on AZ supporters after broadcast Opsporing Verzocht
Police received thirty tips following the broadcast of Opsporing Verzocht last night in which images of rioting AZ supporters were shown. The tips included names of people who were recognized. As a result of the tips, no one has yet been arrested; police expect to do so later.
The images shown in the program are of people who have not reported to police. They are suspected of open violence and/or assault. “Should you yourself be involved in these disturbances and you want to prevent your picture from being shown on national television, please report as soon as possible,” police warned earlier. At least 26 people have already reported to police.
Storming stand with family members
After the elimination of AZ in the semi-finals of the Conference League, supporters stormed the main stand of the AFAS Stadium. There they sought confrontation with fans of West Ham United from London. In the stands were not only supporters of the London club, but also friends and family members of West Ham players.
It was not the first time that there was unrest; the match in England had also been a week before. Then AZ fans were attacked by West Ham fans when AZ fans were cheering for a goal.
Supporters of AZ stormed the main stand of the AFAS Stadium on Thursday after the match.
