Two TBS’ers have escaped from a treatment clinic in Nijmegen. They probably received help from outside; the fence through which they fled has been broken, according to a spokesperson for the clinic. The two TBS’ers got away from the psychiatric clinic around 8.30pm on Tuesday evening for the treatment and resocialization of TBS’ers. The police and the judiciary have been informed and have launched a search.
Nothing has been released about the identity of the detainees. The Nijmegen clinic, together with four other TBS institutions, falls under the Pompestichting. This is a private foundation for forensic psychiatry that treats people who are or will be involved in the criminal justice system.
