The newspaper reported on the information requested by the Sports Disciplinary Action Committee ISR and the Safe Sports Center CVSN.
In the first six months of this year, the ISR has undertaken 54 new cases, compared to 59 cases overall in 2021. Forty-nine of these cases dealt with sexual harassment, from sexual harassment to sexual harassment. About 70 proceedings are underway.
“We are heading to double the number of cases in 2022, and perhaps more,” IRS director Genk van Aller told the NRC.
CVSN data also shows that the case was spiraled. In the first half of 2022, a spokeswoman investigated 750 cases, compared to 900 cases in 2021 overall.
Beginning in 2019, club officials have a legal obligation to report an outbreak of sexual harassment to the IRS rather than to handle it internally. This may have contributed to the increase in the number of cases, but that is not all, Van Allah said.
“In recent years, the subject of sexually unacceptable behavior has been the subject of much controversy. People who have experienced it now feel supported.” It happened to me too. ” They say, “I want to get this out in the open.”
With more media attention and more people registering sexual harassment allegations, a CVSN spokesman quoted Marc Overmars, a former Ajax director of football, and many gym coaches in a widely reported case. ..
Earlier this week, former national football coach Vera Pow said he had filed police complaints against three men who accused him of raping and sexually harassing him while playing 35 years ago. She accused the Football Association KNVB of repeatedly ignoring her complaints.
Gymnastics have been the majority of the 40 people who have sought emotional and legal assistance from the victim assistance service Slachtofferhulp since August last year. “But we also helped people in the world of kickboxing, cycling, volleyball, soccer, handball and athletics,” said a spokesman.
The IRS has been criticized by sports officials for accusing the Commission of being too late to discipline the perpetrators.
In the case of Marc O’Fels, he noted the lack of cooperation from the Ajax authorities, and the committee itself lacked “legal influence” to get the club to share information. I complained.
