More than two months after our request to re-open Eline Melters’ case was sent and received by the district attorneys office in Maastricht, they responded for a second time via twitter [first response and media interview]. Of interest might be that the DA did not send a letter confirming having received our request.
The DA’s Twitter response is:

As I thought it was striking that the DA would reply twice via Twitter, I am at odds why the DA did failed to send a confirmation letter, especially as the DA asked me to call them in case I have further questions. Without a reference or case number and a clear contact person it would require a lot more time and effort on both sides to make clear who and what we would be talking about. In the absence of an official confirmation letter the DA is also in the position to deny ever having received such a letter in the first place. Of course, their twitter reply following my initial tweet proofs they have actually received it.

For now all I can do is wait for the official response by the DA. It should arrive this week, they say.
