The man, whose identity has not been revealed, applied for asylum in the Netherlands in 2019 and settled in the Dutch town of Arkel a year later. After information was received about his past, the International Crimes Team (TIM) of the National Criminal Investigation Department and the Public Prosecution Service started an investigation.
