Request: We received a court order to remove content from Google Search and YouTube showing hidden-camera footage about an extramarital affair of a mayor, a scandal that led to the introduction of a vote of no confidence by the city council.
Outcome: We delisted one URL from the google.nl domain and did not delist the remaining two URLS. We did not remove the YouTube videos as the content was no longer available.
