The four eldest children of the Ruinerwold family regret that father Gerrit Jan van D. dropped by the door in Ermelo in the Veluwe, looking for odd jobs. Especially now that all the fuss has ensured that the whereabouts of the four youngest children have become known.
The four oldest children Shin, Mar Jan, Edino and Israel announced this today in a statement on Facebook.
There was a fuss in the municipality of Ermelo, after it became known that it paid for the accommodation of the Ruinerwold suspect. A petition calling for no longer to pay for the rent was signed more than a hundred times.
Villagers wondered why they helped pay for a house for a man who was suspected of child abuse and who also has a considerable amount of capital of his own. Justice gave him almost a tonne back, an amount that had previously been confiscated in the raid on the Drenthe farm because of the suspicion of money laundering. In addition, the self-proclaimed patriarch owns an enormous piece of land in Staphorst.
Well paid rent
The family indicates that they do pay a fee for the stay. According to her, it is also incorrect that the judiciary has returned the money. According to her, the judge will give a ruling in the civil proceedings about the liability of Gerrit Jan van D. and the destination of the money.
De Telegraaf reported that the father Gerrit Jan – together with the Austrian handyman Josef B. – went from door to door in a wheelchair looking for jobs. When Gerrit Jan was released, he went to live with his five youngest children. One of the five children has since left.
Housed in silence
The municipality itself announced through a local news site that it pays the rent for the youngest children in the family. They knocked on the door last year for housing when the criminal case against their father was still ongoing. The mayor says she wanted to help the children.
The children were quietly housed in Ermelo. The family Josef B. and Gerrit Jan van D. think very much that the whereabouts have become known. “This has come to an end to the peace and security that is so necessary for them. While they need it so desperately now, at the start of their integration into our society. ”
