Dutch court approves delay of 4 weeks for correcting MH17 documents

Dutch Ministry of Justice did too much censoring of MH17 related documents. Dutch press RTL, NOS and Volkskrant used the Dutch WOB law (Freedom of Information Act) to request documents of the Ministry of Justice. The Ministry handed over some documents but the press believed the censoring was too much.

The Dutch press went to court. Rechtbank Midden Holland in Utrecht agreed with press and ordered the Ministry to redo the censoring. The deadline was end of July. However the Ministry  requested for 4 weeks more time to correct the censoring. The reason was holidays.

Utrecht court approved the request also because the Dutch press did not object to the 4 weeks extension of the deadline.

Now the Ministry has to hand over the documents before August 26.

The history of this can be read in this post.
