Misconduct at Dutch Marine Base

A few days ago, Minister Hillen of Defense declared that he did not know about problems of integrity at a marine base in Den Helder. It now turns out that the head of the ministry Ton Annink was aware of the problems for about six months, but had not reported on this to his minister. At the prestigious CAMS Force Vision of the Marines, computers and equipment have been stolen, there has been abuse of car privileges, personnel is absent without permission and there are strong indications that top management there has received bonuses and salary premiums that they were not entitled to. The head of the ministry had announced measures six months ago, yet nothing has happened.
