New Book: Minister of Justice Withheld Key Information from Parliament
A new book by journalist Bas Haan claims that Ard van der Steur Minister of Security and Justice [VVD] has withheld crucial information from parliament both when he was a parliamentarian and as minister. Haan revealed that in March 2015 Van der Steur suggested in a secret email that parliament should not be fully informed about a deal the prosecution made with a criminal. A debate in parliament will determine whether Vad der Steur can keep his position. One should be aware that in mid-March there will be parliamentary elections in the Netherlands.
