The following update was published January 26th, 2024 on the Community of Saint John website.

This Thursday, January 26, the family of br. Elias informed the following, the brothers agree: "After 2 days of bewilderment about the unexpected and sudden death of Elias/Frits, the family would like to inform you the following:
from the overview of the reactions of many people involved, and especially the facts according to the authorities, it is the heartfelt wish of the family to enter into a period of mourning and processing. This means that the family asks you to leave behind the time of speculation about the reason for the death. It is time to consider and commemorate the significance of Elias/Frits in gratitude, for many personally and the church. The Justice Department has been asked today to close the file."

The brothers in Utrecht and The Hague are available if you would like to speak with them.
