The Telegraph further report that:
'Only three of the defendants turned up in court to hear the verdict, an attendance that described by Mrs Nieuwenhuizen as “disrespectful”. “The worst thing for me is that they never admitted what they did,” she said.'The BBC don't report this but do have this really odd passage:
'The BBC's Anna Holligan in The Hague says amateur teams have since introduced a new code of conduct in the hope that such an incident will never happen again.'A code of conduct was needed to stop people kicking match officials to death? Really?
