A physician in the Netherlands was recently reprimanded by an "Inspectorate" for the "Disciplinary Offices for Healthcare" (Tuchtcolleges voor de gezondheidszorg) over this case. 24-Jul-2018 Press Release (Dutch) Detailed Decision (Dutch) The women suffered dementia, and had earlier written a declaration of her desire to be euthanized. However, the ...

Oddthinking's answer is quite complete, but it does not quite address the allegation by the Daily Wire that She was given coffee with a sedative in it, but she refused to drink it — and then struggled as the doctor tried to kill her. She fought so fiercely that the doctor ordered her own family to physically hold her down, and she was forcibly euthanized. ...

Something that isn't discussed in both answers here is that in her demented state, she did express herself. From the decision, point 2.13, most recent 3 quotes, translated: Dutch: “2 april 2016 (…) mw. heeft lange tijd voor de camera gepraat, geklaagd en nu en dan gehuild en minimaal 2x gezegd dat zij dood wilde. (…) “9 april 2016 (…) Gesprek in ...

Children from Openbare basisschool (obs) Vinkenbuurt were taken (in the sense of a field trip) to Gulzar-e-Madina Mosque in Zwolle. See the article OBS Vinkenbuurt maakt kennis met andere culturen : Als onderdeel van het project ‘andere culturen’ hebben leerlingen van OBS Vinkenbuurt een bezoek gebracht aan de Ghulzar-e-Madina moskee in Zwolle.

Probably not. Jason Colavito essentially tracks down all possible sources of the claim and takes them apart, piece by piece. O’Brien and Alley’s immediate source is James W. Loewen’s 1995 book Lies My Teacher Told Me. On page 39, Loewen writes, “Two American Indians shipwrecked in Holland around 60 BC became major curiosities in Europe.” One would ...

Seems to be true about a large number of suddenly dead birds. There are some articles in Dutch media reporting this. However the cause has not been determined and there is no mention of 5G antennas in reports. Mysterie rond dode vogels ("Mystery around dead birds") Tientallen spreeuwen in Huijgenspark Den Haag sterven mysterieuze dood ("Dozens of starlings ...

That depends on your definition of "exonerated" (or the original Dutch term), but I wouldn't say so. CNN quotes Trump as saying: "They say it wasn't them," Trump said. "It may have been their weapon, but they didn't use it, they didn't fire it, they even said the other side fired it to blame them. I mean to be honest with you, you'll probably never know ...

Absence in registry of ships There are no records of an SS Ourang Medan in Lloyds Register for 1946. You can find records of other ships with similar names - for example the SS OrangOutan! Some of the stories about the SS Ourang Medan mention that an American ship named Silver Star heard the morse-code distress call and responded. Sometimes the Silver Star ...

So far, I have been unable to find any estimates that reach the 50-90% figure quoted. The Eighth report of the Dutch National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings (2010) explains the difficulty: There are conflicting estimates of the scale of human trafficking from different organisations and countries. It is therefore very difficult to be certain ...

No, while 337 starlings (<5% of the population) and 2 common wood pigeons were found dead in a Netherlands park, this was not due to a 5G test. The birds died 4 months after the only conducted 5G test and such "bird death" events are quite common. Snopes is my first search result for "The Hague dead birds". They say unexplained bird deaths occurring in ...

According to Statistics Netherlands a total of 136,058 people died in the Netherlands in 2010. 3136 of those were euthanasia - that's about 2.3%. A study found that in 2005, euthanasia accounted for 1.7% of all deaths in the Netherlands (also notable from their numbers, I think, are a decrease in the frequency of "withholding or withdrawing of life-...

The same story also occurs at The Guardian One of her clients, Chris Fulton, 29, who has cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, has launched a campaign calling on the government to introduce a Netherlands-style grant scheme in which citizens with disabilities receive public money to pay for sexual services up to 12 times a year. And here is a ...

It turns out it's a sketch, part of the Flemish series of mockumentaries "In De Gloria". In 2006 one of the sketches, "Boemerang" (Boomerang) gained notoriety on YouTube. It features the host of a talk show, "Boemerang", breaking into fits of giggles after hearing the voice of one of his guests, who spoke in a squeaky manner due to a failed tonsillectomy. ...

The cited articles are quite a bit misleading in how they present and interpret the details, but it they are essentially true regarding the facts they are based on. The German army has several joint ventures going. With France the Franco-German Brigade was formed in 1987. With mainly Poland and Denmark the Multinational Corps Northeast established in 1999....

As is evidenced by the comments and current lack of answers over on this similar question, videos like this are inherently hard to debunk because, while they may have been faked, the acts they portray are theoretically possible. First, it is perhaps most important to point out that this appears to be a viral marketing campaign for an IT training company in ...

As I will explain, this isn't an ideal answer, but provides empirical evidence that The Netherlands is not necessarily the least racist country, and that the very question isn't precise enough to answer meaningfully. The definition of "least racist" isn't clearly defined here, and there are a number of measures that could be used. One suitable measure ...

This post on a Dutch IT forum may shed some light on this matter. This guy seems to access to some facts about the M67 hand grenade, as well as the Cobra 6 [not Cobra 80] firework: De M67 hand granaat die op dit moment gebruikt wordt door verschillende landen (waaronder de US) heeft een kruit inhoud van 180 gram. Dat kruit bestaat uit 39.4% TNT en 59.5% ...

Is it true that hundreds of birds have died in this park? Yes. If it is true, has a cause been positively determined? There appears to still be no certainty about the cause. Both the Natural History Museum in Rotterdam and the Wageningen Bioveterinary Research Laboratory in Lelystad think they have solved the riddle of the 'massive starvation ...

The photo is real, it was group of about 20 people protesting the arrival of Dutch MP Geert Wilders in Britain in 2009 as described by this article That being said, I feel compelled to point out that this in itself doesn't substanciate the claims made in the article the OP posted, some of which have been debunked a number of times, including on this site. ...

The answer is no as of 2016 with reference to the policies of the Government of Netherlands. What is the government’s policy on child brides and forced marriages?: If a married asylum seeker turns out to be under 18, they are placed under a guardianship order by a court. The Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) can also call in the agencies ...

Are Dutch police training drone-hunting eagles? Not exactly, as the article explains, there is a start-up called "Guard from Above" who is proposing this solution, but it is not the same thing as the Dutch police. The Dutch police is their customer: WHO ARE YOUR CLIENTS? We work mainly for national and international governmental security agencies. ...

To provide some citations from academic papers rather than news articles: The Rights and Wrongs of Prostitution 09 January 2009 Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy This division already exists in the Netherlands where “sex surrogates” who work with disabled people are legally and socially constructed as different from prostitutes who work with ...

Snopes actually has more details refuting the sequence of events; because tests of 5G use yet unallocated spectrum, they need special regulatory approval. One such test did occur in an area generally near Huijgenspark, but it took place on 28 June 2018, and it was not followed by a massive bird die-off. For this test, the Dutch equivalent of the FCC ...

As told by the company that produced the "documentary": To prove that IT can be fun, we gave birth to a hacker IT company Info Support was having a hard time recruiting new talents because of the industry's reputation of being very, very boring. Their initial request was a corporate video arguing that working at Info Support is not boring at all. We ...

Not currently Its domain (www.diebergkomter.nl) is currently for sale, a strong indication the initiative has run out of steam. But that doesn't mean it was never considered. Not officially It has never been an official proposal or even idea by the Dutch government. Creating a new province, Flevoland, out of an inland sea, was. Building the Delta works to ...

Things to consider: The Netherlands officially segregates it's citizens into two categories: autochtoon and allochtoon (ethnic Dutch and others); there is also officially defined group called "non-Western allochtoon", which is basically very elaborate way of saying "non-White" ("non-Western allochtoon is someone whose 'country of origin' is or lies in ...

There is a short report on the swiss national broadcaster, SRF, about the incident, to be found here, in german: https://www.srf.ch/news/wirtschaft/mobilfunk-geruechte-die-wichtigsten-antworten-in-der-5g-debatte In short it says (translation mine): Local authorities rebuted 5G-tests on that same day. Dead birds have been found over the course of ...
