Dutch term or phrase: gew.
Art. 28 + 29 Wet 1.08.1985 gew. Wet 22.04.2003 en KB 31.10.2005

I am unsure what gew. means in the sentence above. It is a sentence in a judgement by a police court.
I found somewhere that 'gew.' stands for 'repealed by'.
I would like to have some logic behind this as proof as I cant think of the word 'gew.' is the abbreviation for.

Notes to answerer
Asker: So repealed by is correct for 'gew.'?

Asker: I mean the meaning, but in English you say 'amended' without using any abbreviation?

Asker: I am not expressing myself very well, I know the two meanings are different. Thanks for your answer.

Asker: Thank you everyone and thank you James in particular.

agree  philgoddard: Not repealed. And I wouldn't abbreviate it because people won't know what it means.
