KLM Helped Nazis Flee after Second World War

A new witness has appeared confirming for the BBC World Service that
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines helped Nazis to flee to Argentina after the Second World War. The witness declared that in 1949 he was present at a harsh discussion between Albert Plesman, the then-head of KLM, and the pilot and writer Adriaan Viruly. The latter had been asked to take a group of Nazi criminals on his flight to Argentina. Plesman warned Viruly against making this public. KLM has opened an internal investigation into the matter.
