R. was arrested on March 11 after he allegedly drove a shovel through a barrier at a farmers’ protest in The Hague.
A video and a photo of the action at the prison show at least eight tractors honking past the complex on Eikenlaan. A white limousine also rode in the procession. A spokesperson said that the municipality was not aware of the action, but that it was allowed after the group promised to leave after half an hour.

The 60-year-old R. appeared in court on Friday afternoon, but his case was not dealt with substantively because he had challenged the court. Before the judge withdrew, he did decide that R. had to stay in jail longer.
