D66 member Sjoerd Sjoerdsma pointed out during a debate that the Machielse Committee, which investigated the course of events with regard to the arrest and extradition of Poch, has confirmed that an intervention attempt has been made. It was a phone call from a woman who claimed she spoke on behalf of circles around the Oranges. She found the situation painful for then Princess Máxima. Her father was part of the Argentine military junta at the time.
The Chamber finds it “undesirable and harmful to the image of the Dutch constitutional state and the royal family if the impression of alleged influence on the royal family in the Poch criminal case continues to exist”.
The House passed a similar motion in February. It was then the intention that the National Criminal Investigation Service would investigate the matter. But he didn’t want that because of the statute of limitations, says Sjoerdsma.
