Cancer Missiles - Questions for the Dutch Government
case is not closed for her, yet. Van Veltzen reminds the Defense Secretary about the statement he made in front of the Parliament, according to which the Romanian authorities knew all about the many complaints and about the possible connections between the cancer cases and the radiations. In the same time, she asks again directly the question about informing the Romanian authorities, demanding the date and the information given. Krista also asks van der Knaap for an explanation of the fact that the Romanian Ministry of Defense said they had not receive any information, referring here to the article in Jurnalul National on the 11th of August 2005. The State Secretary will also have to say the date of the informing the Romanian authorities about the results of the investigations in Holland and Belgium and if he would terminate the contract at the request of the Romanian party. A few months ago, van der Knaap was saying he didnât intend to leave Romania the opportunity of returning those systems back. The State Secretary will also have to answer if the systems would be transferred in September. Under the given circumstances, wouldnât it be better for the missiles to remain in Holland until the clarification of the suspicions regarding these systems? If yes, where would they be stored? SERIOUS SITUATION. In the past few years, the antiaircraft HAWK defense systems have met with many controversies in all the states that owned or still own them. There are a lot of complaints from the personnel from the engineering departments, as well as from the former army men that had worked with these missiles. This way, 212 files had been registered in Holland. 73 people say they suffer from several forms of cancer. Belgium faces a similar situation. There are complex lawsuits in Germany and the United States in which hundreds of thousands of euros had been claimed as damages. In all these states, the authorities had to start investigations that cost as much. The most serious of them, with results expected by the ministries, the producer and the sick people as well, takes place in Belgium and gathers data from more states. It started in 2001 and there are many people saying it should have ended by now. However, its coordinators say they are about to reach the end. The first preliminary results should be made public during this fall, and the investigation will be finalized at the end of the next year. There exists, in Holland, an investigation by TNO (a medical and biological research institute), but the unions displeased it because this investigation is all about theoretical results. DILEMMAS. All the details regarding the transaction between Romania and Holland are very foggy. There is nothing certain about it, not even the date of the signing of the contract. According to a public statement on the official webpage of the Dutch Air Forces, the contract had been signed on the 6th of December 2004. However, the annual report of the same institution, made public on the 18th of May 2005, says it had been signed on the 18th of November 2004. The same uncertainty is met when trying to get information about the present location of the missiles. According to the annual report, the transfer of the missiles took place in April 2005, which means the missiles are already in Romania. On the other hand, Janeâs Defense, a prestigious magazine in the field, was saying the missiles were to arrive in Romania this month.
