Wim Dankbaar was back in Dutch court in February 2014 because he was continuing his usual course of business to defame, harass and stalk various people across the internet.
While he was what he called “investigating” the 1999 murder of a 16-year-old Dutch girl, Dankbaar went on to defame the father of the dead girl’s friend, likening him to a NAZI collaborator. The two victims in this case claimed compensation for more than 1500 euros in total.
The prosecution demanded that Dankbaar be penalized with 80-hours community service and 4 weeks suspended prison sentence for libel and insult. Dankbaar was ordered to have his slanderous text removed from the internet immediately and for every offense thereafter, Dankbaar was to spend a month in jail.
