Four years in prison and TBS with coercion for brutal rape in Rotterdam


On June 21, 2018, the woman, a then 20-year-old student from Indonesia, was life-threateningly assaulted and raped right outside her home in the Rotterdam district of De Esch. She was so battered that she needed urgent surgery. This operation saved her life.

The rape caused a lot of unrest in the residential area. Residents held a demonstration march.

The ruling of the court is the same as the appeal on appeal. In June 2019, the court in Rotterdam imposed up to two years of juvenile detention and youth TBS. This is because the suspect Gerson F., 18 years old at the time, had a childhood full of neglect and sexual violence. He would have the emotional level of a child.

Personality disorder

The court finds that a compulsory hospital order with compulsory nursing is more appropriate, also at the ‘explicit request’ of F. himself. Experts had advised against juvenile criminal law. “On appeal it has been established that the suspect has a serious personality disorder and is greatly reduced accountability,” said the court.

The risk that F. will show sexual or violent behavior again is very high, according to the court.
