The writ of execution was delivered to the DNS-provider on a Friday night, long after all offices closed. The provider is summoned to provide the information within 48 hours. These 48 hours will be expired 12 hours before offices open again on Monday morning. This way it has been made impossible for him to seek legal advice from a lawyer or an organisation specialised in Internet law like Bits of Freedom.
The writ of execution is also addressed to the girlfriend of the DNS-provider. How she would have access to the data that aren't being kept anywhere, are not managed by her boyfriend and she has never had anything to do with is a complete mystery to the indymedia.nl editorial team. Will the police try and convince our postman to submit non-existing data next time?
This attempt by the police to force indymedia.nl to provide data it doesn't have and doesn't need to keep started after a media hype over a threat towards Geert Wilders posted in the middle of the night by a visitor to the website. The editorial team removed the posting within 45 minutes, but it still got a lot of attention in the media. The poster is still available on Fok.nl, RTL and de Telegraaf.
The Indymedia.nl editorial team is fed up with this police intimidation and hopes they will find something more constructive to do with their time after the sending of this letter
