How do we keep on the right side of Big Brother in Washington, DC?
In our [Dutch] foreign policy this question will play a role.
However, it should not in a question of criminal law.
In September 2006, 18 year old Josanne is raped in Arnhem.
The suspect is a United States soldier of the 82th Airborne Division, called “Tito” G.
Dutch prosecutors have made a deal with US authorities that this soldier will stand trial in the United States.
However, Josanne’s lawyer is afraid there will be no conviction.
He wants the United States to extradite the soldier to The Netherlands; and that he should stand trial in The Netherlands.
So does Josanne herself, interviewed in the program.
She told that 25 year old “Tito” had told her he had killed in Iraq and might do it again to her.
She felt extremely scared.
Today, she feels the rape destroyed her life.
She used to be happy and outgoing.
Now, she does not dare to walk outside the house on her own any more.
The lawyer said that in the US, people want to send the suspect to Iraq again, which would preclude him being punished.
