Dutch parliamentarian, Ronald van Raak, of the Socialist Party, has asked for the rehabilitation of the whistle blower Frits Veerman, who has been intimidated by the Dutch authorities for many decades. Forty years ago, Veerman was a collaborator of Abdul Khan, a Pakistani who worked in the Netherlands and stole secrets which enabled Pakistan to build an atom bomb. The Dutch Secret Service, which knew about the spy, did not want to interfere because of a request of the CIA. The know-how Pakistan acquired has been shared with Iran and North Korea.

Jihadists in the prison of Vught have written a manifest of 32 pages to protest their conditions there. Due to a mistake of the prison management, the document has reached the media. The prisoners write that their conditions are so sparse, that it is barely better than being in an isolation cell. They claim, for instance, that there are no sports facilities. They mention that they have raised these issues many times with the prison management without results. One of the prisoner’s lawyers, André Seebregts, says that “constructive conversations” are going on about the conditions.

On this year’s Veterans Day Minister of Defense Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert said that nothing about the original assignment of the UN Dutchbat soldiers going to Srebrenica was evident. This, with one exception: it was clear that there was no mandate for a “genuine protection of the area or of the population. That created an illusion of security.” Hennis mentioned that while other countries refused to send soldiers to Srebrenica, the Netherlands did. She added that Dutchbat was sent there “without adequately being prepared for the specific circumstances, with insufficient means and capacities, a poor information position, all this to maintain peace where there was no peace. The assignment could not be carried out from the outset.”www.defensie.nl/actueel/nieuws/2016/06/25/applaus-voor-%E2%80%98dutchbatters%E2%80%99-tijdens-veteranendag
