During the broadcast, the singer is confronted with all the reporting surrounding the incident. She says she didn’t expect it to “attract so much media.” The fact that she will sit down with Jinek tonight and tell her story extensively for the first time has therefore not left her in the cold: “This is such an important day for me. It is also exciting.” The singer shares why she now wants to share her story: “In the first place I am not here to be the victim myself. And secondly to once again express my regret to all victims.”
Glennis also wants to straighten things out, she says. “A lot of untruths have been told in the media. I’m not here for fun, but to make things clear.” Still, the singer finds it confrontational that the incident has received so much attention. “It has become a big thing because of my name. I really don’t deserve the beauty prize, but it has become so big that I was told about me every day on TV.”
The Jumbo was called in advance by the Jinek team to tell them that Glennis will join tonight’s broadcast. However, the supermarket does not want to say anything about the incident.
Glennis is suspected of threats, open assault and premeditated assault. After the incident, she was detained at the police station for three days. The singer will appear in court in Amsterdam on Wednesday, October 26.
It has been decided by the public prosecutor to summon six other persons in addition to Glennis. This includes two minor suspects. These will be before the juvenile court on 27 October. Glennis’s now 16-year-old son is also arrested after the incident. He may be one of those two suspects.
