Verdict in the Marengo trial of Ridouan Taghi postponed

Saïd Razzouki, Ridouan Taghi.
A court in Amsterdam said weeks ago that the cases against main suspect Ridouan Taghi and 16 co-defendants are so complex that a new date will have to be established for a verdict. The original judgment date of October 20, 2023 is unfeasible, the court declared. Prosecutors are seeking life for Taghi and his right hand man Saïd Razzouki. The Marengo trial is one of the biggest murder trials in the history of the Netherlands and started over two years ago. The defendants are accused of planning 13 gangland murders, of which six were carried out between 2015 and 2017 in the ‘Mocro mafia’ drugs war. Investigative journalist Peter R. de Vries was murdered in 2021 because of his involvement in a gangland murder trial. Taghi and Razzouki are the leaders of the gang who set out to ruthlessly dominate the Dutch underworld.
Anyone considered a threat was put on Taghi’s death list including innocent people he feared could provide information to cops.
Taghi micro-managed some killings, ordering his hit teams to put three bullets into the head of one victim and to carry out the murders “with style.”
