The 28-year-old man from Eindhoven, who was arrested on suspicion of assisted suicide, is said to have sold the deadly powder to at least six people. The Public Prosecution Service (OM) reports this on Friday based on an investigation into the case. The examining magistrate has ruled that the suspect must be detained for fourteen days longer. According to the police, the investigation into the man is still ongoing.
The Public Prosecution Service suspects the man of violating the Medicines Act and money laundering. The reason for the case is the death of a woman from Best in May, where a suspicious substance was found. After that, the judiciary also found other people who would have taken the deadly substance. The suspect sold the drug from November 2018 to June 2021, according to the Public Prosecution Service.
In addition to suicide powder, he is also said to have sold a drug that reduces the tendency to vomit. Because the man is not a pharmacist or doctor, he is not allowed to dispense that drug according to the law. According to the OM, the suspect used the proceeds from his practices for living expenses; that is why the judiciary also suspects him of money laundering.
