Finally Admitted: Thirty Eight Years Ago, Minister of Justice Misled Parliament

Minister of Security and Justice Ard van der Steur has told parliament that 38 years ago, his predecessor, Dries van Agt misinformed them. Van Agt had said after a kidnapping of a Dutch train by Moluccans that the Dutch marines who killed six kidnappers had not shot at kidnappers who had a weapon but offered no resistance. A recent report shows that four out of six kidnappers showed no resistance and were killed by the marines. A female kidnapper did not even have a weapon. Several kidnappers were lying on the ground when they were killed.
