Published: 02nd August 2021 Last updated: 04th August 2021

On April 15, 2016, Tilburg University filed charges against former dean of the Tilburg School of Humanities and Digital Sciences on the suspicions of financial fraud.

The Public Prosecutor took up the case and in June 2021 the public criminal hearing took place at the Amsterdam District Court. On August 2, 2021, the Amsterdam District Court handed down its judgment and sentenced the former dean for, among other things, forgery and 180 hours of community service.

It is good that the court has issued a verdict. We will study it and look forward to a reaction of the prosecution.
