Green Left Parliamentarian Resigns Due to New Revelations

Green Left Parliamentarian Wijnand Duyvendak has announced that he will resign from Parliament in view of new revelations on his activist past. In addition to the burglary in which he was involved at the Ministry of Economic Affairs in 1985, it has now become known that the publication of the names of officials of the ministry has led to threats against at least one of them. George Verberg, whose address was given in a radical left journal of which Duyvendak was an editor, published that as a result of this someone had tried to burn his house. Duyvendak now says that he regrets publishing the addresses and that he was not involved in the arson.
