Due to loopholes in Dutch law, it is extremely easy for car thieves to buy the equipment necessary to steal cars. This was said by Mr. Wouter Verkerk of the Foundation for Insurance and Car Criminality (VbV). In three years, the number of new cars which have been stolen has increased by 250%. As a result of the loopholes in the law, the Netherlands has become a successful exporter of new and almost-new stolen cars and car parts.

The Freedom party will soon introduce legislation to parliament about Black Pete. This new law will state that whenever communities organize an official reception for Sinterklaas, they will have to make sure that Black Pete is truly black. In addition, it will not be allowed to change the lyrics of classic Sinterklaas songs. It is doubtful whether a majority of parliamentarians will support the law.

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.http://www.volkskrant.nl/vk/nl/2686/Binnenland/article/detail/3747493/2014/09/13/Oud-gevangenisdirecteuren-klagen-Opstelten-aan-voor-rol-in-zaak-Demmink.dhtml

The Telegraaf daily reports that Dutch jihadists have reached the highest levels of ISIS, where they have direct contact with its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. The Dutch jihadist, Abu Ubaida al-Maghribi had an important function in the ISIS jail where the American journalist, James Foley, was held before he was beheaded. There are reports that al-Maghribi has, in the meantime, been murdered by ISIS fighters on suspicions of spying. Another example is the Dutch jihadi, Khalid K., who has been seen photographed with a German jihadi who belongs to al-Baghdadi’s immediate advisors. Khalid K. has also been photographed with a number of skulls.www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/23075927/__Polderjihadist_bij_top_ISIS__.html

Russian UN Ambassador Vitali Tsjoerkin has said that the Dutch report of the Malaysian airline crash in Ukraine can hardly be considered an unbiased investigation. He added that all this vague report proves is that the plane hasn’t fallen down by itself, but has been shot down - which is obvious. The Dutch experts, who conducted the study with the help of the Ukrainians, cannot claim that this was an international investigation.
