Three people being held in custody in connection with the Holleeder blackmail trial have been released from jail. On Monday, an Amsterdam court ruled that the case should be adjourned until September while the main suspect, Willem Holleeder, recovers from heart surgery.
The public prosecution department opposed the decision to release the men. In total, 10 people are on trial for blackmailing four property tycoons, two of whom have since been killed.
