Bill sent to House of Representatives: special position of investigating officers in criminal law
Police officers will no longer automatically be considered a suspect during an investigation into use of force. From now on, the use of force will also be checked against a new offence description tailored to police officers and criminalising any violation of the rules governing the use of force. This is the essence of a bill from Minister Van der Steur (Security and Justice) which was submitted to the House of Representatives today.
