Victim of stabbing incident in the city center of Utrecht: ‘He came running towards me with the knife out of nowhere’

Victim of stabbing incident in the city center of Utrecht

According to his lawyer, H. must be acquitted, because there was a case of emergency. According to counsel, three witnesses who say that his client stabbed out of nowhere are unreliable, because they would be friends of the victim. The victim was also drunk and made varying statements, he argued. If the court nevertheless convicted his client, compensation should in any case be rejected, because the victim himself had a part in the violence.
