July 8 – Police in the Netherlands arrested six men suspected of preparing to commit kidnappings and hold people hostage after discovering an “Underworld” prison equipped with a torture chamber made from converted shipping containers in a warehouse.
According to the prosecutor’s office, amid their investigation police intercepted encrypted phone messages, some of which contained photos of the containers and the dental chair.
Police placed the warehouse under observation from mid-April and observed several men working on the containers nearly daily, stating they believed the planned kidnappings were being prepared with “Great precision” as there were several so-called teams involved as well as weapons, police clothes, vans, stop signs and bulletproof vests at the ready.
