MP Patrick Illidge not in pre-trial detention

~ Released pending further investigation ~

PHILIPSBURG--Member of Parliament (MP) Patrick Illidge, who is a suspect in the Orca case, was released from detention yesterday pending further investigation.

The Prosecutor's Office confirmed in a statement that the prosecutor had not requested that the judge subject Illidge to "bewaringstelling," a type of custody that qualifies as pre-trial detention. Because he has not been in pre-trial detention, he will not be suspended from Parliament.

"Of course, this decision does not mean that P.I. is no longer a suspect. He remains a suspect and the investigation will continue," the statement from the prosecutors read.

Illidge had come to the end of the eight-day extension of his initial two-day term in police custody and the options at that stage were either requesting that the judge authorise pre-trial detention, releasing Illidge pending further investigation, deciding there is no case against him, or proceeding with a court case against him.

The Prosecutor's Office has said previously that it is not expecting any further arrests in the Orca case, also known as the Bada Bing case. The only other suspect is Bada Bing club owner Jaap van den Heuvel, who also is still a suspect, but no longer in custody.
