Did Minister Support Radical Paper?

The Liberal Party (VVD) has asked Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende to clarify the role of Jacqueline Cramer, the Minister of the Environment (Labor), in the publication Bluf in 1986. At that time this radical paper published documents stolen from the ministry of economic affairs. Cramer’s name appeared among the supporters of the paper. VVD wants to know whether Cramer knew about the burglary in the ministry and whether she had spoken with the prime minister about this issue before she entered the cabinet. Cramer says that she had never permitted the use of her name as a supporter of the paper.
