Dutch Officer: Dutch Minister Prevented UN Air Force Support for Dutch Soldiers on the Ground in Srebrenica

Former Dutch Air Force officer Bart Wagenaar has stated that Dutch Minister of Defense Voorhoeve prevented UN support for the Dutch military back in 1995 on the day when the Muslim enclave of Srebrenica was taken over by Bosnian Serbian soldiers.  In the current court case against Dutch commander Thom Karremans, his lawyer Geert-Jan Knoops wants Wagenaar to be heard. Voorhoeve denies the accusation. In a related court case, a Dutch soldier, Derk Zwaan, has opened a lawsuit against the Dutch state in order to receive payment for the post-traumatic stress resulting from his service in Srebrenica.
