PHILIPSBURG--The Prosecutor announced that the suspects C.H.M. (53), J.M.S. (68) and R.J.L. (39) are being questioned for their involvement in the criminal case code-named “Catfish.”

As the investigation is in full swing, additional witnesses are asked to come forward and contact the National Detective Agency (Landsrecherche), if necessary via the number for anonymous witnesses 1-721-527-2623. Other suspects will also be questioned in the coming days.
The Catfish investigation is being carried out by the National Detective Agency under the authority of the Prosecutor's Office.
