Dutch Buy Cheaper Gasoline in Germany

As gasoline and cigarettes are becoming increasingly more expensive in the Netherlands, more and more Dutch people cross over the border to Germany for their purchases. Gasoline costs 16 Euro cents more per liter in the Netherlands now than in Germany. This leads to major economic problems for Dutch gasoline stations near the German border which have lost tens of percent of their gasoline sales. While these Dutch are already in Germany to fill up their tanks, they also buy other goods in Germany, damaging the Dutch economy further.

Meat in Dutch Shops not Safe

The Investigation Council for Safety has published a report titled “Risks in the Meat Chain.” The report concluded that production companies consider economic factors more important than safe products. Hygiene rules are often not followed due to insufficient training of personnel, or due to time pressures for instance. Fraud in the meat industry is frequent also. Meat which is initially labeled as “waste meat” is turned into meat for human consumption. The safety of horse meat is not guaranteed, as it is so easily subject to fraud. The council concludes that the authority which is in charge of control and safety, the Dutch Food and Commodities Authority (NVWA) in particular, makes many mistakes. This is due to the frequent reorganization and cost-cutting. Its means are too limited to act efficiently in the meat chain.

Many Dutch Retailers no Longer Complain to the Police

A TV program of the NCRV broadcaster claimed that one out of three Dutch retailers no longer complains to police about theft or vandalism. This is based on an inquiry among more than 800 retailers. These people believe that complaining to the police is a waste of time and that the police discourage complaints. A spokesman of the organization Detailhandel Nederland, recognizes the signals. He says, “Policemen say that complaints are just filed, or that the perpetrators will not be found anyway.”

You Tube: Jihadi from the Netherlands with Five cut-off Heads

Abdurahman, apparently a Dutch jihadi from Almere, can be seen on You Tube with a bloody knife behind five cut-off heads. He is originally from Iraq, and has lived more than ten years in The Netherlands. He lived there from social security as he was found unfit to work and used drugs against claustrophobia and schizophrenia. In 2012 an AFP picture emerged on which Abdurahman could be seen next to a dead body, while he was reading the Koran. Initially he joined the Jabhat-al Nusra movement in Syria, which is linked to Al Qaida. It seems that he has now moved to the even more barbarian ISIS jihadis. It is claimed that the heads were cut off from Al Nusra fighters.

Easy to Break out of Dutch Prisons

The bars before the windows of Dutch prisons can easily be removed. They have been screwed in with regular screws and not with special antitheft screws. These can be loosened with an ordinary screwdriver. This became clear when recently a murderer and serial rapist escaped from the Penitentiary Psychiatric Center in Vught. According to prison employees regular screws are preferred by the prison authorities because it is easier to paint them.

Dutch Intelligence Services Broke Law

Both Dutch intelligence and security services AIVD, the general one and MIVD the military one, have broken the law. A number of these irregularities were already mentioned in 2011. This is the conclusion of an investigation of the CTIVD, at the request of Parliament. The CTIVD is an independent commission which supervises the two intelligence services. MIVD collected data in collaboration with foreign intelligence services without asking permission from the minister. The AIVD used agents to collect information which came down to wiretapping without asking for permission of the minister. Chairman Harm Brouwer of CTIVD considers the irregularities very serious. However, the AIVD and MIVD do not collect data systematically illegally.

Dutch Energy Supplies Partly Derived from Columbian Blood Coals

Coal imported into the Netherlands which provide a substantial part of the energy of the country, is partly ‘blood coal’ from Columbia. The Volkskrant daily visited the Cesar region of Columbia, from which more than half of its coal exports to the Netherlands. The coal industry there makes agriculture impossible and causes lung disease among the population. Child prostitution and venereal disease have increased greatly since the opening of the mines. Already in 2010, the Columbian Ministry of Environment decided that three villages have to be moved in view of the huge air pollution. The mining companies have still not provided adequate housing for the population to be moved. Critics of the coal mines receive death threats. Dutch Minister of Foreign Trade Lilianne Ploumen (Labor Party) said that efforts to deal with the problem have so far been unsuccessful.

General Intelligence Service Mistrusts Military Intelligence Service

At the headquarters of the Dutch General Intelligence Service (AIVD) in Zoetermeer, a common cyber unit (Joint Sigint Cyber Unit) will be created together with the military intelligence service (MIVD). This means that under 250 employees of MIVD will move to the AIVD headquarters. The AIVD wants an additional security clearance for the MIVD employees because they want to know who they are bringing into their headquarters. The MIVD employees are furious, because they already have a security clearance and want to take legal action against the AIVD.
