First minor fined €250 for Project X Haren riots

The first juvenile to face charges for his involvement in the Project X Haren riots of last month has been fined €250 and ordered to do 60 hours community service.

The money will go into a special fund to help pay for the damage caused when a 16th birthday party became an internet hype and ended in a riot.
In total, eight juveniles are appearing before magistrates on Monday.
