According to NOS teletekst a man from Rotterdam tried to blackmail Prime Minister Jan-Peter Balkenende. He threatened to make public several letters that he had that were adressed to Princess Margriet and that came from the 2nd chamber of the States General. The man wanted 2.5 million euros from the Dutch state.

The man claims the letters were accidently sent to his adress, while the prosecution claims that he got them in an illegal way, and certainly not by such a mistake.

His trial will be on December 19th, charges are embazzlement and blackmail.

Now one wonders: why would Princess Margriet receive private letters from the 2nd chamber?

Unbelieveble,the "guy" is 74.Apparently he was falsely accused of theft in the early eighties,and that has cost him his (then)company,it went broke due to that accusation.He felt/feels the State owes him a sum for that mistake,et voila...The nutcase probably feels they owe him 20 years of interest as well hence the amount...

Lettters from the Second Chamber to HRH?Might be all in the frame of official representation and such,fe,information from chamber committee's,correspondence between the PM and HRH concerning issues she works with for the IRC Red Cross/Red Crescent,whatever,the PM is accountable for "her actions and words",so I do not think it all that surprising there is correspondence between one and the other.Question is,how did that guy lay hands on it,who has sent him these letters from the PM's office/Tweede Kamer and maybe have their share of the "buit"?...
