The chairman of police union ACP has been relieved of his duties pending an investigation into unspecified claims of ‘unacceptable behaviour’,  the union has said in a short statement.

The ACP says several reports have been made about Gerrit van de Kamp, which will now be looked into by an external organisation. Van de Kamp’s removal will ‘create space to carry out the investigation and to allow a fair hearing for those involved,’  the ACP said.

Van de Kamp has been chairman of the ACP since 2014 and has an important voice in the sector’s wage agreement talks. He is also a member of the government’s advisory Social Economic Council (SER).

The union chief’s case is the latest in a spate of scandals involving unacceptable sexual behaviour following the Voice of Holland revelations in January.
