Today a Dutch newspaper published an in-depth follow-up item on JW abuse issues.
The most interesting part of the article is this:
The politicians also let themselves be heard. A month ago the House of Representatives voted unanimously in favor of a motion to enforce an independent inquiry into abuse within the Jehovah's Witnesses, as the organization refuses to initiate it. Minister Sander Dekker of legal protection can't do anything other than comply, said spokesperson when asked. In autumn, more will be made known about the how and what.
So the newspaper called the Minister of Legal Protection, asked whether he will or will not start an inquiry as the MPs demand, and the Minister's spokesperson said 'he can't do anything other than comply'.
Stay tuned folks! The indian summer will be very hot for the Dutch branch!
