Minister: No Longer Possible to Protect Ships from Pirates At All Times

Minister of Defense Hans Hillen (Liberals) has announced that the Dutch Navy will not be able to have military ships constantly at sea to protect merchant ships from pirates. Due to the decrease in the military’s budget, there will be short periods when there will be no Dutch military ships in the area. Hillen mentioned this on the TV program Oog in Oog.
