Arab Dictatorships Own Major Investments in Netherlands

Labor Party Parliamentarian Frans Timmermans wants the authorities to establish a list of companies which are in the hands of dictatorships where human rights are abused. A study ordered by the RTL News Service reveals that state companies from Arab countries have almost 20 million Euro of investments in the Netherlands. Libya and Saudi Arabia are major investors. Timmermans says that once a list is drawn up, the Netherlands can take action against these companies if there are developments such as the ones presently taking place in Libya.
