Six Former Prison Directors Want Dutch Minister of Justice Prosecuted

Six former directors of Dutch prisons have put in a complaint against Ivo Opstelten, the Dutch Minister of Security and Justice.  They believe the Minister to be politically responsible for the delay in complaints against the former Director General of the Ministry, Joris Demmink, who is suspected of pedophilia.  In April, Opstelten told the Dutch public broadcasting service, NOS, that he believed Demmink was not guilty.  The six former directors have asked a parliamentary commission to order the Prosecutor General at the Supreme Court to start a criminal investigation of Demmink.
