Parliamentarian Asks Rehabilitation for Whistle Blower Who Wanted To Prevent Pakistani Atom Bomb

Dutch parliamentarian, Ronald van Raak, of the Socialist Party, has asked for the rehabilitation of the whistle blower Frits Veerman, who has been intimidated by the Dutch authorities for many decades.  Forty years ago, Veerman was a collaborator of Abdul Khan, a Pakistani who worked in the Netherlands and stole secrets which enabled Pakistan to build an atom bomb.  The Dutch Secret Service, which knew about the spy, did not want to interfere because of a request of the CIA.  The know-how Pakistan acquired has been shared with Iran and North Korea.
