Giel Beelen definitively convicted of driving under the influence

The condemnation of Giel Beelen due to driving under the influence is permanently. That has the High Council in The Hague on Tuesday determined.

Beelen was by the court in 2017 sentenced to a fine of 750 euros and banned from driving for six months, five of which are conditional.

The radio dj went in appeal against the punishment. According to him, this was for practical reasons, so that for some time he simply car could continue to drive. The court stated Beelen is inadmissible in the case, because of that reason, not as objections to be considered against the judgment.

Beelen went in appeal to the High Council. That certain that the punishment of the court just continues.

‘I must be in the blisters sitting

“I’m never a good example, but this is bad,” tweeted Beelen at the time about the incident. “With alcohol behind the wheel. Stupid! Now the blisters are as it should be.”

The Veronica-presenter got in the past multiple driving restrictions due to hard drive. In 2007, he had a wider audience because he, despite such a ban, still behind the wheel was crawled.
