Board of State Railways Tried to Prevent Parliamentary Inquiry

At the beginning of 2013, the board of the Dutch state railways, NS, tried to prevent a parliamentary inquiry about the failure of the high speed Fyra trains.  This became public when the temporary chairman of NS, Engelhardt Robbe, appeared before the parliamentary inquiry commission. One of the commission’s members, Ton Elias (Labor), quoted a confidential report of a meeting where Robbe was present. Elias asked, “is it acceptable that a company tries to prevent such an inquiry?”  Robbe said that he didn’t remember the meeting.
