CONGRESS TARGETS GLOBAL CHILD-TRAFFICKING SCANDAL
Full 'transparent' investigate sought

October 16, 2012

Members of Congress are targeting an international child-trafficking scandal, asking Turkey to provide evidence and seeking a full and “transparent” investigation in the Netherlands over allegations that a top justice officer there has been involved in child rape.

U.S. Rep. Christopher Smith, R-N.J., issued a statement calling the case “shocking and horrible,” but the suspect, Secretary General of the Ministry of Justice Joris Demmink, who apparently has been defended by the U.S. State Department’s Hague office, is facing credible allegations.

While Demmink has been accused multiple times, “the investigation into these accusations was suddenly and inexplicably halted, and law-enforcement officials involved were allegedly sworn to secrecy,” Smith said at a recent hearing on the issue of child trafficking.

He noted the accusations, among others, have been that Demmink raped two Turkish boys, now adults.

“The allegations are shocking and horrible, Mr. Demmink has a right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law, and that is a sacred right that I’m sure we all want to protect. At the same time, the allegations, when taken in their full context, are credible, and deserve to be properly investigated so that a prosecutor can make a responsible decision whether to proceed with a case against Mr. Demmink. That investigation has never happened – the investigations that have taken place have been a travesty and have done nothing to clear Mr. Demmink’s name. Rather, they have raised further questions,” he said.

The request to Turkey for its evidence comes from Rep. Ted Poe, R-Texas. He submitted the request because the allegations are that Demmink assaulted children in Turkey when he traveled there .

“It has come to my attention that Secretary General of the Dutch Ministry of Justice, Mr. Joris Demmink, allegedly made an agreement in the mid-1990s with the government of Turkey to cover up multiple complaints of child sexual abuse filed against him,” said the letter to Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

“Investigations into the matter reportedly have found that Turkish police officers provided Mr. Demmink with minor boys during his visits to Turkey in the 1990s. According to law enforcement officers in Turkey and the Netherlands, Mr. Demmink used the power of his position to obstruct efforts to file complaints against him and used investigations as a way to deter his accusers,” the letter said.

An attorney in the Netherlands, Adele van der Plas, is representing several of the men who remember being victimized by Demmink. She told WND today the Netherlands has decided to back Demmink “in spite of all the overwhelming proof.”

She cited four police reports naming Demmink as a suspect and said six victims have come forward to identify him. She said a Turkish policeman who was assigned to provide security but instead was asked to kidnap boys from the street for Demmink to rape has come forward.

The U.S. Embassy in the Hague even apparently has defended Demmink. A WND source reported that the State Department’s operation there argued to members of Congress that “the allegations have repeatedly been investigated but proof was never found for his having committed criminal offenses.”

The report said “the prosecutor’s office … concluded that there was no evidence to substantiate the allegation.”

The report forwarded to members of Congress said prosecutors decided against a case because the testimony of one of the alleged victims represented by van der Plaswas was deemed “unreliable.”

“If there was anything to it, it would have come out after all these years,” the report said.

But van der Plas told WND, “There has never been a credible investigation into his behavior.”

She said the investigations simply are halted.
“The Dutch Ministry of Justice doesn’t take any child abuse case seriously at all,” she said. “All the pedophile rings in Europe have been investigated and some have gone to jail. Not in the Netherlands. The Dutch have been cited by the U.N. as a center of child trafficking.”

She said the reason is that the criminal case would “touch the top power elite.”

“If they investigate they will find massive fraud and corruption that Demmink has been able to deflect and insulate himself and many others,” she said.

MARCHERS PROTEST DUTCH OFFICIAL SUSPECTED OF CHILD RAPE
Targeting American division of company that would pay his pension

October 18, 2012

Marchers from the Rebecca Project for Human Rights say they are staging a protest in front of the New York City offices of APG Asset Management, in the Chrysler Building, against a high-ranking government official in the Netherlands who is suspected of child rape.

WND has reported on the case of Joris Demmink, the secretary general of the Ministry of Justice in the Netherlands. Just yesterday, it was reported that the U.S. State Department had launched a defense of the suspect in multiple child rape cases.

WND reported that members of Congress are inserting themselves into the case, asking the Dutch for a “transparent” investigation and even calling on Turkey to deliver any evidence it has in the claims being made against Demmink.

Kwame Fosu, the policy director for the Rebecca Project, said in a statement to WND today that the march is to call “the world’s attention to a shocking and outrageous situation in the Netherlands.”

“For years, Mr. Demmink has used the power of his office to thwart investigations into this despicable behavior,” he said. “This year, as more of Demmink’s victims speak up and demand justice, The Rebecca Project is leading a series of worldwide actions to force the Dutch government to deal with this matter as is required in a civilized world.

“One of the most frustrating aspects of Demmink’s reign of terror is his plan to retire from the Dutch government – WITH HONOR – very soon. When he does, it is widely anticipated that he will escape punishment for his crimes by fleeing to a non-extradition nation, where he will continue his perverse activities while being supported by the Dutch pension system, APG Asset Management,” he said.

He said the march is scheduled for Friday, when dozens of activists will protest in front of the APG offices in the Chrysler Building in New York City, “demanding that APG affirm it will not release Demmink’s pension until and unless his alleged crimes are investigated and adjudicated properly. ”

Top Dutch Official Facing Child Rape Allegations
October 29, 2012

WASHINGTON -- A high-ranking Dutch official, who's retiring this week, is being honored for his work. But human rights advocates say Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary-General Joris Demmink doesn't deserve praise; he deserves prison.

Demmink is being accused of raping two teenage boys, now men, during a visit to Turkey in 1990s. One of them recently shared his story on Capitol Hill.

Emotional Testimony

Much like a court room, witnesses at an Oct. 4 Helsinki Commission briefing presented their testimonies to a Capitol Hill audience. But Demmink, the man they've accused, has yet to stand trial.
 
"I was afraid to say no, and I was very young and very innocent," one victim testified, describing the emotional scars from childhood.

His identity is being protected because he barely survived an assassination attempt. That attack followed his allegations against what's been called "the Dutch Super Elite."
 ::snipping2::
The Dutch government acknowledged investigating several complaints against Demmink, both in the Netherlands and Turkey, dating back to the 1990s.

It's official finding: "The outcome of these investigations has always been that the rumors and allegations are utterly baseless."

H.P. Schreinemachers, a representative from the Dutch Embassy, attended the congressional hearing and criticized the panel's findings.

"The Netherlands takes the fight against child sex trafficking very seriously," he said.

Commission Chair: 'Talk is Cheap'
     
Rep. Chris Smith, R-N.J., chairman of the commission and a leading advocate for human rights, believes that statement can only be backed up by taking action.

"If all of this evidence does not suggest that crimes have committed, I would be shocked, frankly," he said.

News of the case is spreading across the Web with sites like ArrestDemmink.com. Its creators want to stop the Netherlands from honoring him when he retires as early as this week.

Meanwhile, Van der Plas continues to call for justice against Demmink and wonders just how high the case may go.

Turkish Victims Ask Netherlands Court to Prosecute Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary General Joris Demmink
October 25, 2012

AMSTERDAM, OCT.25, 2012 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Two Turkish men who previously pressed charges against Secretary General Joris. Demmink of the Ministry of Justice for rape and sexual abuse of minors (i.e. children under sixteen years of age), lodged an appeal to the Court of Justice in the Hague on October 24 requesting that Demmink be indicted.

The two men, Mustafa Y. and Osman B., had been victims of Demmink themselves. When they were 12- and 14-years-old, the victims have testified that Turkish police had lured them to a hotel room where Demmink raped them. In September 2008 and May 2010, the victims officially reported the crime to the National Public Prosecution Service in Rotterdam. After Mustafa Y. pressed charges in 2008, he has been repeatedly harassed and mistreated in Turkey by a former senior police officer so that he will drop the charges against Demmink. Osman has also been accosted, in hopes that he will drop the charges.

In February 2012, the National Public Prosecution Service communicated to Osman B. that Demmink would not be prosecuted, because his statement was deemed too unreliable and it could not be confirmed that Demmink had been in Turkey during the time when the sexual abuse was alleged to have occurred. The National Public Prosecution Service has informed Mustafa Y. that it will not launch an investigation into his charges as long as he refuses to travel to the Netherlands to explain his allegations.

Both victims are opposed to this decision.

Mustafa Y. informed the Court that the National Public Prosecution Service's refusal to investigate his claim is in violation of the Lanzarote Convention on the Protection of Children against Sexual Exploitation and Sexual Abuse. This Treaty clearly states that prosecution of sexual abuse should never be made dependent on the fact of whether charges were filed or not.

Osman B. criticizes the fact that the National Public Prosecution Service has limited itself to a "exploratory" review of the charges. Such an investigation provides no opportunity for instituting coercive measures rooted in criminal law, such as recording witnesses accounts and testimony in Turkey.

Evidence


There is plenty of supporting evidence available, according to both victims. Both men have identified Mehmet Korkmaz as the policeman who brought them to Demmink, while Korkmaz himself stated in a video interview that he had brought Mustafa and other boys to Demmink for sexual abuse. Korkmaz's then boss, the former police chief of Istanbul, confirmed that his police protected Demmink during his visits to Turkey during the 1990s. In a report, the senior Turkish security officer Huseyin Celebi describes Demminks' vulnerability to blackmail after he was caught engaging in child abuse in 1995 in Turkey. Celebi also laid out the dates from 1990s during which Demmink had visited Turkey. These dates cover the period mentioned in both police reports. The Dutch National Public Prosecution Service additionally received a similar list of dates of Demmink entering the country from the Governor of Istanbul. The dates indicated on the list match directly to the visit to Ankara from the EU K4 Committee, a European committee in which Demmink had represented the Netherlands. The National Public Prosecution Service completely skipped over this supporting evidence.

Hearing in the US

The apparent unwillingness of the Netherlands to criminally investigate the charges the victims filed against Joris Demmink has also been submitted to the U.S. Helsinki Commission. This Commission of the U.S. State Department monitors the protection of human rights by countries party to the OSCE, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe.

(http://csce.gov/index.cfm?FuseAction=AboutCommission.WorkOfCommission)

The committee briefing (http://www.csce.gov/index.cfm?FuseAction=ContentRecords.ViewDetail&ContentRecord_id=531&ContentType=H,B&ContentRecordType=B&CFID=9193995&CFTOKEN=44159500)  in which a Dutch delegation testified on the issue, including the legal counsel for Turkish men and a Dutch victim of Joris Demmink, took place on October 4, 2012 in Washington DC. The committee chairman Christopher H. Smith stressed during the hearing that:

"The sex trafficking and abuse of children is one of the most despicable, violent crimes on earth – shattering the lives of the victims and their families – a crime from which the victims struggle for a lifetime to recover,"

He warned that:

"The traffickers and abusers rely on their ability to frighten a child into silence or the reluctance of adults to listen when children speak. They also use their own reputations, standing, or power in the community to prevent allegations from being properly considered and investigated."

The hearing focused on the question of how a legal system should respond to reports of child abuse and honed in on cases like the one Osman B. and Mustafa Y. were bringing against Joris Demmink, against whom all accusations seem to be ignored by Dutch authorities

Smith ended the hearing with the words: "Finally, I am the special representative for the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly. I do think it is my job in that capacity to raise these issues."

Rebecca Project for Human Rights Condemns Netherlands-Turkey Trade Talks While Senior Dutch and Turkish Government Officials Continue to Cover Up the Pedophile Accusations Against Former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary General Joris Demmink
November 6, 2012

WASHINGTON, NOV. 6, 2012 — /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte travels with a delegation of prominent Dutch businessmen on a trade mission to Turkey, questions remain regarding the involvement of Mr. Rutte's government in covering up accusations of pedophilia, in both the Netherlands and Turkey, against former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary General Joris Demmink.  Mr. Demmink's retirement ceremony on October 31, during which he was honored for his government service by Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and other senior members of the Dutch government, effectively ended the Dutch government's opportunity to arrest and prosecute Demmink for these alleged instances of pedophilia.  The Rebecca Project for Human Rights Executive Director Imani Walker and Policy Director Kwame Fosu issued the following statement, strongly condemning the trade discussions between the Dutch and Turkish governments, while the accused crimes that Demmink perpetrated against victims in the Netherlands and Turkey remain unanswered:

"Senior Dutch and Turkish government officials have been both active and complicit in the cover-up of pedophilia accusations against former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary General Joris Demmink.  Dutch law enforcement officials have continued to turn a blind eye to these accusations. Turkish law enforcement officials have intimidated the victims of Demmink's crimes. While the United States and the United Kingdom have actively sought answers in recent pedophilia investigations, the Dutch and Turkish governments have further victimized those who Demmink allegedly raped. This must end.
 ::snipping2::
As reported in the leading Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad (AD), members of the Dutch parliament from across party lines - labor, socialists, Christian democrats, and Demmink's Conservative party (VVD – People Party for Freedom and Democracy) – have called for a thorough investigation into the accusations against Demmink.  Separately, Dutch and EU parliamentarian Lucas Hartong from the Party for Freedom (PVV) wants the European Parliament to hold a hearing on Demmink's case.

Ministers are pursuing 'Demmink letter'
November 28, 2012

The Dutch ambassador in Washington Bekink in his letter to the U.S. Congress on 17 August rightly wrote that the allegations of pedophilia to the address of Joris Demmink, the former Secretary-General of Justice, "depth" ('thoroughly') were analyzed by the Public Prosecutor. 
That letter Frans Timmermans, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Opstelten, Minister of Justice today in response to Chamber questions , asked by the Christian Democrats and Omtzigt Oskam. Ministers say the content and ministerial responsibility for writing the ambassador fully accept.
"No special investigative powers'

But what is "thorough investigation"? This term of the questioners by the responding ministers avoided. Both in 2007 and 2011 is investigated. "The legal form of both studies was that of a so-called exploratory fact finding." "In such a study can by the national department and by the prosecution of persons to be heard and can actually be investigated, but" so far indicate two ministers, "without defining special investigative powers used." Therefore, according to Article 27 Code of Criminal Procedure "one from facts and circumstances arising reasonable suspicion of guilt of a criminal offense" required. Now this, according to the two ministers "was the opinion of the public prosecutor is not the case."

Evil deception

The answer is that the Ministers agree that a preliminary fact-finding to the outside - in this case to the American Congress, that a hearing on Demmink loved - sold as a "thorough" investigation, thus a suggestion calling as though the matter to the soil is investigated. This is the first, pretty bad deception in the letter from the ambassador. Also confirm that the two ministers ambassador wrote that the prosecution has "determined" that Demmink not in Turkey in the period in which he was in that country would have been guilty of child abuse. At the same time, they recognize that the OM only his presence there as part of a preliminary fact finding not able to determine, which is something totally different. Nevertheless, the OM already under that superficial finding (because "without special investigative powers" established) apart from criminal investigation.

REBECCA PROJECT FOR HUMAN RIGHTS CALLS ON THE COUNCIL OF EUROPE TO PROMPTLY ANSWER AN INQUIRY FROM T
December 19, 2012


Following a December 6 letter from European People's Party (EPP) MP Luca Volonte to the Council of Europe, inquiring into a "serious violation" of the Lanzarote Convention by the Netherlands, The Rebecca Project for Human Rights today called on the Council of Europe to promptly answer MP Volonte's concerns that the Netherlands has failed to initiate adequate investigations into allegations of child abuse by former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary-General Joris Demmink .  In MP Volonte's letter to the Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers he asks if 1) Does it (Council of Europe) agree that the Netherlands has seriously violated its obligation to implement the Lanzarote Convention with the continuous refusal to initiate official inquiries into the numerous charges of child abuse against this senior Dutch official? Does it agree that this is scandalous, especially in view of the influential position of the accused person?; 2) Does it agree that an impartial investigation with international expertise must be conducted in this particular case?; and 3) Is it willing to ask the Dutch authorities to launch an impartial investigation with independent investigators from different countries? The full text of the letter is available at: http://assembly.coe.int/ASP/Doc/XrefViewPDF.asp?FileID=19235&Language=EN. The Council of Europe's Committee of Ministers consists of Europe's 47 ministers of foreign affairs, and answers to MP Volonte's questions will be formulated by each country's ambassador to the Council of Europe.

Attorney for Turkish Victims of Former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary-General Joris Demmink's Alleged Crimes Applauds Letter from Congress Expressing Concern to Turkish Ambassador About Pedophilia Investigation
January 4, 2013

Bakker Schut Foundation's Adele van der Plas Urges 113th Session of Congress to Further Investigate Concerns of Congressmen Ted Poe (R-TX), Jim Costa (D-CA), and Chris Smith (R-NJ,) Who Have Questioned Whether Victims Have Been "Threatened and Intimidated into Dropping their Allegations against Joris Demmink"

AMSTERDAM, Jan. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- As the 113th United States Congress convenes on January 3, Adele van der Plas, Managing Director of the Bakker Schut Foundation and attorney for Turkish victims of former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary-General Joris Demmink's alleged pedophilia crimes, issued the following statement:

"Congressmen Ted Poe (R-TX), Jim Costa (D-CA), and Chris Smith (R-NJ) have courageously expressed 'serious concern' to Turkey's Ambassador to the U.S. Namik Tan about the investigation into alleged pedophilia crimes committed by former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary-General Joris Demmink.  The 113th Session of the United States Congress must continue to raise the concerns of these members of the Congressional Victims' Rights Caucus and investigate whether the Dutch and Turkish governments have covered up Demmink's alleged crimes.  As Congressmen Poe, Costa, and Smith have stated, there are questions for the Turkish government to answer regarding victims being threatened and intimidated into dropping their claims against the former Dutch Justice Ministry Secretary-General.  It is reprehensible that former Turkish police authorities including Emin Arslan, the former Deputy Chief of the Turkish national Police Force, have offered my clients – victims of sexual abuse – money to recant their allegations.  Even more troubling are the threats against the victims' family members.  While Dutch and Turkish authorities continue to ignore the victims of sexual abuse, members of the United States Congress have indicated that they will be the voice for the victims and push the governments of the Netherlands and Turkey for answers.

The boy is offered money and a new Turkish lawyer, who in Netherlands complaint to the Court should withdraw. This new lawyer would also behalf proceedings against their Dutch lawyer must begin. To the journalist were given two names of employees of the Dutch Ministry of Justice who must be notified of the withdrawal of declarations against Demmink.

Just last week, the journalist Burhan Kazmali again approached by Emin Arslan and a relative with the requirement of the new address Mustafa giving off. After Kazmali refused, he was beaten unconscious in the street. Of all the intimidation and abuse has now reported. By the Turkish authorities is to date no action to protect the victims.
