Fantastic man who did an outstanding job in raising awareness for security research when it was still an open field.He build up the Research Council from scratch,and against all odds,and sometimes downright anti powers from the respective governments who often found Pieter annoying due to his relentless asking questions on both accidents that occurred,lack of transparancy and incompetent folks on wrong places pushing responsibility as far away as possible,he was a nuisance to them.He nailed them,with a vengeance,and as a true gentleman having a way with words not many can surpass.Really,the man performed miracles almost in gaining momentum for his Council,something he is widely applauded for,absolutely.

There was a fantastic documentary on his life and work aired last sunday,but very late,after 11PM,rediculously late.It showed many aspects of what makes Pieter van Vollenhoven tick,the support of his Princess,his family,his drive for truth and justice,filmed during work or at the new home of Pieter and the Princess and at the "Marianne Schuur",(Marianne's Stables) which is their new guesthouse.

Absolutely,I wish more men of his caliber would be around

Apart from the van Vollenhovens the event was also attended by the wonderful Mrs. Martine van Loon-Labouchère, the grand mastress/mistress (unfortunate title in English ) of HM The Queen.

http://www.ppe-agency.com/500px/Sep2011/PPE11091259.jpg

I guess she could have gone by foot as Huize van Loon in a 5-10 minute walk away from the theatre.

The evening was presented by Ivo Niehe, who must be a favourite of the couple since he interviewed both of them on several occassions.

The fund named after the princess starts with a capital of € 1.095.000.The fund will focs on 'preperation for disasters'.

Nice to see Princess Anita again after such along absence! And to state the obvious: how much all the grand children have grown since the last time we saw them. I have difficulties recognising most of them. Anna and Isabella must be going to secundairy school soon...

That,the Honorary Doctorate,but also because she is our "Canadian" Princess ofcourse,being born in Ottawa during WW II exile,she has a very strong bond with Canada and her 70th birthday was another reason for the dinner hosted by the Embassy .
