The Andy de Heus case is at a virtual standstill. The main suspect must first serve his sentence in Germany. This while the German Public Prosecutor's Office claims to be able to extradite him.
Ron S. (49) from Sittard, the alleged killer of Andy de Heus from Echt who is in prison in Germany, can simply be extradited to the Netherlands immediately. This is what chief public prosecutor Paul Jansen of the public prosecutor's office in Bochum, Germany, explains to De Limburger.
The Public Prosecutor's Office (OM) in Limburg is investigating the possibility of a (temporary) transfer to the Netherlands, it said in a comment.
According to the prosecutor's office in Limburg, however, extradition of S. in the De Heus case has not yet been arranged because a new criminal case would be pending against him in Germany.
S. is currently serving a six-year sentence in Bochum prison for two serious drug offenses in Germany. He is also suspected in that country of involvement in a mysterious murder case. According to the justice system in Germany, however, that alleged murder case is no obstacle to extraditing Ron S.. "After all, that investigation is deadlocked."
Serge Weening, attorney for Ron S. , says he is awaiting developments.
