Footage of Dutch war criminal Westerling discovered

Captain Westerling

Translated from Dutch NOS TV:

Interview with Westerling discovered

Update: Tuesday, August 14, 2012, 15:14

For the first time, images of the Dutch Captain Raymond Westerling have surfaced in which he admits that under his responsibility in the Dutch East Indies [Indonesia] war crimes were committed. The interview from 1969 was never broadcast; NCRV broadcasters will do that tonight.

According to Westerling the crimes were committed by four subordinates. He feels that he himself is responsible.

Westerling in 1947 was the commander of the commandos in South Sulawesi trying to break opposition to Dutch rule. He had already been blamed for massacres in which some 3500 people were executed.
