Press photographer got attacked by Ajax fans

A press photographer has been attacked by Ajax fans as he was taking photos, at the Ajax league title win celebrations on Sunday, and now he has filed an official complaint with the Amsterdam police.

The photographer, who works for the Associated Press, wants to remain anonymous. Defying coronavirus rules, he went to the stadium, where around 12,000 Ajax fans went to celebrate the club’s victory

While the photographer was taking pictures from the event, and the players and club CEO Edwin van der Sar were overlooking the square to show off the trophy, he experienced unexpected gestures from Ajax fans.

Someone called him a bad word and kicked him in the back, and as he was trying to escape from the situation, he got hit on the side of the head with a full can of beer. 

Tony Hickes, the deputy director of the Associated Press, announced that he will raise this issue with authorities, and the NVJ journalists union, and probably will also file an official complaint against the club, Ajax. 

Polices are investigating the case, and they are calling for witnesses to come forward.
