MDNDR011 refrains from investigating N. Achikzei, Z. Mehraban and Mr. P.H. Ruijzendaal.

Narges Achikzei, who was set on fire, and her boyfriend had a heated conflict with the woman's 32-year-old former employer in Utrecht. The family is associated with fraudulent practices. In any case, they were accused by an aggrieved man. He himself was summoned to a court one week after the fire murder in connection with the slander. For a long time he is said to have sent e-mails to the woman - an ex-worker - and damaged her honour and good name.

It is very likely that this conflict played a role in the cruel death. The public prosecutor's office never wants to answer questions about the content of the legal conflict. It is clear that the conflict exerted great pressure on Achikzei and other participants.

Subject: refraining from investigative inquiries

Dear sir,

On 23 June 2009, you reported several criminal offences in Zeist that were committed against you or your company by a former employee and a former trainee and some of their family members during the period January 2008 – June 2009. Shortly after the declaration was recorded, I assessed it and decided to give it a low priority; as a result, in fact, no/little follow-up investigation is carried out in the declaration. I have now reassessed your declaration and decided not to have a (further) investigation into this matter carried out; your declaration will be put on the shelf.

The arguments that led to this decision can be found in:
1. the priorities set by the Public Administration and the Public Prosecution Service. After all, each research requires capacity that is (unfortunately) limited;
2. the assessment made of the possibility of achieving a successful conclusion of the case or conviction of the accused;
3. the extent to which criminal proceedings are both feasible and opportune.

It has been established that an investigation to be launched would require a great deal of capacity, and that this effort is disproportionate to the priority of the report. In addition, it has become clear to me that the alleged criminal offences have taken place in a limited circle and that as a result the community interest is limited or non-existent. A successful prosecution therefore seems extremely doubtful, all the more so since the legal and convincing evidence in the various allegedly criminal acts is difficult or impossible to provide. For these reasons, criminal government intervention is refrained from; it would be better if the conflict were to be fought out between the parties in a court of law.

Kind regards,
The chief of detective / deputy prosecutor,
