Dutch news RTL Nieuws filed a request for information (WOB) to Dutch Prime Minister requesting him to make public two types of documents;
- minutes of meetings of the cabinet reagarding MH17
- an interview report of a talk between Rutte and University Twenthe
PM Rutte refused to make public the documents and as a result RTL went to court
Dutch court Midden Holland at April 4 2017 concluded:
- minutes of meetings do not have to be made public. Revealing the content would be disadvantageous to the cabinet and would prevent an open dialogue.
- Rutte has to make clear on what reasons he refused to make the interview report public. Rutte was given four weeks to respond.
