    It's been a very rough week in the field of world terrorism. We had Christchurch, then we have Amsterdam, then yesterday Italy had a Senegal bus driver torch a school bus full of 51 children. All in the name of terrorism.

    Verdachte Gökmen T. had schulden en zou woning kwijtraken

    Gökmen T., the suspect of the attack in Utrecht, was in debt and at risk of losing his home. This is apparent from recent court documents in the possession of RTL Nieuws. He would also be engaged and was planning to get married soon.

    T. was arrested last week after the attack in Utrecht in which three people died and five others were injured. But this was not the first time that T. came into contact with the justice system.

    T. had to appear before the police judge three weeks ago because of a burglary at a bicycle shop in Utrecht. At that hearing T. declared that he lived alone, lived on benefit and had debts because of outstanding traffic fines.

    It also became clear that in case of a possible prison sentence he would lose his home.

    T.'s lawyer asked the judge, during the session three-weeks ago, to take these circumstances into account. Nevertheless, the judge sentenced him to four months' imprisonment for burglary and theft of money from the shop's cash register. The judge did not consider a community service penalty to be appropriate in view of the fact that T. had often appeared before a judge already.

    According to T.'s lawyer, things went better for her client than in the period before. "My client is currently in an upward phase. He is engaged and is about to get married. His personal circumstances are now many times better than in the past," she told the judge.

    Before the judge, T. denied to be involved in the burglary. Although he was in a car that was used in the burglary, he only declared that he had joined later.

    According to the police, T.'s clothing and shoes were recognised on camera images, but his lawyer found the camera images 'not so clear'. The lawyer appealed against the decision. RTL Nieuws approached her, but she did not want to respond.

    The 74-year-old man who died today after being seriously injured during the attack in Utrecht, was not on the tram. The man was hit by several bullets on the 24 Oktoberplein while he was sitting in his car.

    Zoon slachtoffer aanslag Utrecht: 'Hij heeft zo veel pijn geleden'

    Son of victim Utrecht attack: 'He suffered so much pain.'

    "With a heavy heart I unfortunately have to announce that my father passed away this afternoon". Michael Hoveling writes it in a public message on Facebook. His 74-year-old father is the fourth victim of the shooting in a tram in Utrecht.

    The Public Prosecution announced today that the 74-year-old man died of his injuries in the hospital.

    "What this man has been through in the past eleven days is horrible," Michael writes. "He has suffered so much pain in these days, it is indescribable. Today we have freed him from this pain, however difficult it may be for us."

    There is still one seriously injured victim in the hospital, a 20 year old woman from Utrecht. A 21-year-old woman from Nieuwegein who was seriously injured was discharged from hospital this week.

    "As so many know, my father was always positive in life and he was a gourmand, he loved good food and good candy", Michael continues. "The bullets made it necessary to remove all the intestines, both large and small, and the rectum. This would mean that my father could never eat again and would have to to live 24 hours a day with tubes in his body, he would not have been mobile either."

    "I have saved him from this suffering, which has cost me so much effort, I am totally exhausted."

    The funeral will take place in private, Michael writes. There will be a register of condolence for everyone to express their support. Michael concludes: "Rest gently dad. I love you very much, although I did not tell you that enough."

    Advocaat slachtoffer Utrecht reageert op Gökmen T.

    Lawyer Sébas Diekstra, assisting the father of Roos Verschuur, the young woman who was shot dead, has responded to the message that appeared today on Twitter. Peter R. De Vries shared the message that the terrorist suspect would have been radicalized in prison.

    The lawyer has indicated that he does not want to respond to the message in terms of content. Sébas Diekstra did have, on behalf of Roos' father, a message to the minister: He wants "immediate maximum disclosure about what happened around the suspect in the period leading up to the attack and how this information was shared with the various parties." This reaction comes after Peter R. de Vries shared a message on Twitter about Gökmen T.

    Text Peter R. de Vries:

    "A very reliable source reports to me that Gökmen T., the perpetrator of the attack in Utrecht, was seriously radicalised there shortly before his release from prison and that four detainees reported this, That is why in the work hall a altercation took place with a prison officer. T. wanted to pray on his prayer mat in the work-hall - against the rules. He thought that he had too little time for this and that it was too noisy to pray. He had an exchange of words about this with a guard - named Joop - and then headbutted him.

    As a disciplinary measure, Gökmen T. was placed in isolation, according to the source. During that measure he was released by the Court. The headbutt was not reported during the court session. Nor was this reported to the police. Four detainees reported separately that T. was radicalising and made disturbing statements.

    The Ministry of Justice and Security does not want to comment on this story at all. The same applies to the Lelystad prison where T. stayed."
