The allegations against this high ranking government official are not reported in the 2012 Trafficking in Persons Report by the U.S. Department of State, Office to Combat and Monitor Trafficking in Persons, which gives the Netherlands a Tier 1 ranking – the highest ranking available indicating compliance with the standards to combat trafficking. Nor have these allegations spurred the European Union to take action, raising serious concern as to the level of seriousness with which governments are responding to human trafficking. Reporters, law enforcement agents, prosecutors, and victims within the Netherlands report fear of grave danger in exposing these crimes.
