Indonesian survivors of colonial killing sue Dutch government


This video is called Shocking story of Dutch war veteran in Indonesia.

Translated from Dutch NOS TV, about the 1945-1949 colonial war in Indonesia:

Sulawesi children sue Dutch government

Update: Monday 23 Sep 2013, 08:47

Five children of men who in 1947 in South Sulawesi were executed by Dutch soldiers have sued the Dutch government. They say that they, like the widows of the victims, are entitled to compensation.

With ten widows a settlement of 20,000 euros has been agreed. During the military actions between 1945 and 1949 their husbands were summarily executed. This scheme is supposed to be extended to all executions of that time.

Regarding the children the Dutch government claims the period of limitation has passed. The foundation on Dutch debts of honour compares their situation to that of the widows.
