Retired General: Army Personnel has Lost Confidence in Minister

Retired Major General Harm de Jonge, a member of the board of the army officers organization has published an article in which he said that army personnel has lost confidence in the Minister of Defense, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert. He said that the cutbacks in the budget affect the cohesion of the army. He added that she has no need to dismiss personnel due to the cuts, because many understand the reality and leave the army anyhow. He mentioned that the army is selling new armored vehicles and in this way, loses money for the government. It is highly unusual that army officers publicly attack the Minister of Defense. www.google.co.il/?gws_rd=cr&ei=AdkuUvasGMSs0QXg24B4#q=volkskrant+vertrouwen+in+minister&tbm=nws
