The Dutch State is not accountable for the death of two hijackers in the liberation of a hijacked train at De Punt in 1977, the court in The Hague ruled on Wednesday.
Lawyer Liesbeth Zegveld is pressing charges against the Ministry of Defense for preparing and influencing former soldiers on what to say when they testified in a case surrounding the deaths of two hijackers during the liberation of a hijacked train at De Punt in 1977.
Relatives of killed Moluccan train hijackers received transcriptions of sound recordings made when soldiers stormed the hijacked train at De Punt in 1977. A number of soldiers were carrying recording equipment, intended for training purposes. The Netherlands Forensic Institute transcribed the recordings after the court ordered this done, NOS reports.
