Jail sentence for organising football riots

A 28-year-old man from Utrecht has been jailed for eight months, four of which are a suspended sentence, for organising football riots.

However a demand by the prosecution that the man be required to report to the local police station during every FC Utrecht home match for two years was rejected by the magistrate.
