Description

In HET VONNIS (The Verdict) the world is exactly as it is now. There's just one difference: the Dutch population has  - by way of a referendum  - voted massively in favour of the reintroduction of the death penalty.

The new law on the 'Democratic Enforcement of Sentences' regulating the course of events, provides, among other things, that any citizen can be - kindly but urgently - requested to carry out a death penalty.
