Update June 4:
I was not completely right. The court decided that the Dutch state has to make clear why many sentences were censored. Also some documents were not handed over. The judge states he did not recognize the given reason “personal opinion” for censoring. Dutch state has to recorrect the censoring within 8 weeks.
In October 2014 Dutch media RTL, De Volkskrant and NOS requested, based on the WOB law (Freedom of Information Act), the Dutch government to release information which could provide the journalists insight into the acting of Dutch government on MH17 affairs.
The Dutch government released some documents but all information was censored.
The Dutch media went to court in February to get more info. The court decided the verdict would made public end of March. Then the verdict was extended to the end of April and finally it was extended to at the latest June 3, 2016.
Today the court of Midden Holland let me know that indeed at the last possible day , June 3 2016, the verdict would be announced. Likely, because he was not 100% sure the verdict would be released on June 3.
Below my prediction of the verdict.
The judge has been able to read the secret documents. He will agree with the Dutch government release of inside information is a danger to relations between friendly countries. This relation is more important than freedom of information.
This verdict is similar to the acting of the Dutch government so far. This is a long list of facts showing the Dutch government has something to hide.
The big question: what is so important to hide from the public and press?
The Dutch government, by minister Timmermans, was told in the days after July 17 2014 by the Ukraine government what happened to MH17. The public can only guess what the facts are and what was told.
If MH17 was as simple as: “a Russian supplied BUK shot down MH17 on accident” why the secrecy by the Dutch?
Will the next of kin ever know the truth? I do not think so and that makes me very sad.
