Tram attack suspect tells court he refuses to recognise Dutch law

An alleged shooter on a tram in the Dutch city of Utrecht in March has said he rejects Dutch law while appearing in a local court in the Netherlands.

Turkish-born Gokmen Tanis allegedly boarded the tram before opening fire indiscriminately, killing four people, including a 49-year-old father of two children and a 74-year old man, who died several days after the shooting.

"I am not a democrat. I don't recognise you or your court," Dutch news agency ANP quoted the 37-year-old suspect as telling the judges during Monday's pre-trial hearing. He said he didn't need a defence lawyer since he had "already confessed".

As the 37-year-old was led out of the court following the brief session, the father of one of the victims yelled: "Coward! Coward! You're a pig."
