Dutch Justice Minister Quits Over Deal with Drug Trafficker

Minister of Justice and Security Ivo Opstelten and Junior Minister Fred Teeven have handed in their resignations shortly after the ministry announced that it had found out that 15 years ago, the Ministry had paid 4.7 million guilders to a drug trafficker, Cees H.  Teeven at the time had been the public prosecutor dealing with the case.  Earlier, he had given a much lower amount and thus mislead parliament.
