Looks like it’s one rule for us, and another for those that will one day be in the Dutch cabinet
The municipality of Groningen has decided not to intervene in any way against student association Vindicat. The municipality says that it ‘regrets’ the incident in which members of the soggy-biscuit club had a super-spreader party on board a party bus, but will take no action even though throughout the Coronavirus pandemic Vindicat’s members have broken rule after rule, time after time.
“The violation of the Coronavirus measures took place outside the club building,” says Deputy Mayor Roeland van der Schaaf. “From a legal point of view, you cannot impose a measure on the entire association.”, RTV Noord reports.
The fact that Vindicat has nothing to fear from the municipality (seriously, not even a letter?) does not mean that the student association is out of concern.
Later this month, the accreditation committee of the RUG and Hanze University of Applied Sciences will advise on the accreditation of Vindicat. This can affect certain grants that the association receives.
“The images from the bus will be included in the advice on accreditation,” said RUG spokesman Jorien Bakker about this last week.
As for the other 99% of people that live in Groningen, we’ll just continue to keep to the rules.
