The police raided the woman’s home in Rotterdam and seized a number of mobile phones and several computers. A judge at a preliminary hearing granted the woman bail on the condition that she leave the man alone. But just a couple of hours after being released, she allegedly called him again, says our correspondent.She has been kept in custody ever since, and is due to appear before a judge in The Hague later.
