Parents of two Dutch soldiers killed in Mali sue Ministry of Defense

Two Dutch soldiers were killed by grenades in Mali in 2016.    The parents of these soldiers said that the Military Policed informed them that their sons were killed due to a manufacturing error of  the grenades. A report by the Dutch Safety Board revealed that the grenades were never inspected, improperly stored and that these soldiers in Mali didn’t have access to quality medical care.  The parents are now pressing charges of death through negligence against the Ministry of Defense and an unknown number of defense employees. The Dutch Ministry of Defense does not want to mention names of the employees who played a crucial role in the run up to the accident.
