Parliamentary questions
16 January 2013
Question for written answer
to the Council
Rule 117
Lucas Hartong (NI)

 Subject:  Visits by former top Netherlands official to Turkey
At the end of last year, Mr Ehler, chairman of the European Parliament’s Delegation for relations with the United States, received a letter from three US congressmen, namely Messrs. Joseph Pitts, Frank Wolf and Christopher Smith, concerning former Netherlands top official Demmink. Congressman Ted Poe has also recently sent a letter to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan of Turkey urging him to disclose the state of affairs of this long-standing issue. I would like to ask the following questions in this connection:
1. Can the Council indicate who took part in the K4 official delegation to Ankara and Istanbul on 9‐10 March 1998?
2. Can the Council indicate whether more K4 delegations visited Turkey between 1990 and 1999 and whether or not Mr Demmink was part of them? What were the dates and the locations of those trips?
3. Can the Council indicate whether Mr Demmink may have been part of other delegations to Turkey between 1990 and 1999, other than in the context of K4?
