Football fans fined for anti police t-shirt

Three fans of Amsterdam football club Ajax have each been fined €330 for wearing a t-shirt with an anti-police message.

The three attended the Ajax Heracles match last April wearing t-shirts with the numbers 1312 printed on them. 1312 stands for ACAB, or ‘all cops are bastards’.
The public prosecution department told the Telegraaf it is the first time supporters have been fined for such an offence.
