A number of important Dutch people were named in the Amsterdam
court on Monday, where witnesses are being questioned in a case
surrounding an extensive network of child sexual abuse and child
prostitution in Amsterdam in the 1980’s. According to the first witness,
former mayor Ed van Thijn, former Minister Onno Rudding and Prince
Claus were all involved in pedophile-prostitution to some extent.

Koos van Woudenberg is the first of nine witnesses that will testify
under oath this week. According to Van Woudenberg, he was abused in an
Amsterdam apartment while he was still in primary school, according to
AD reporter Koen Voskuil tweeting live from within the courtroom.

In that Amsterdam apartment, which belonged to now deceased professor
Ger van Roon, sexual acts were committed with young boys, Van
Woudenberg told the court. The witness stated that he saw former mayor
Ed van Thijn, top Justice official Joris Demmink and former Minister
Onno Rudding in the apartment, performing sexual acts with boys. Demmink
was there almost every time, Van Thijn at least twice. Van Woudenberg
had oral sex with Rudding. He also claims that he saw Prince Claus at a
bar “in relation with young boys.” Prince Claus was also in Van Roon’s
apartment.






The second witness to be questioned was Raphael Beth, a former
employee of public health service GGD, back then GG&GD, in
Amsterdam. The now 70 year old Beth worked as a field employee for the
service from the late 80’s. He had a good overview of the boys involved
because they came to him with their problems. He also visited visited
the six or seven youth-brothels in the city at least once a week, to
talk to the owners and check on the boys.

According to Beth, about 350 boys were working as child prostitutes
in Amsterdam in the 80’s and 90’s. He told the court that the boys
recruited each other. Each of them had a list of names of men they could
visit. According to him, most of the young prostitutes in the brothels
were around 17 years old. But there were also 15 and 16 year olds, and a
single 14 year old.






“Pedophile-prostitution was tolerated at the time”, Beth said to the
court. According to him, the GG&GD ignored his concerns about child
prostitution. The boys working in prostitution contracted many diseases
and often learned to gamble and use cocaine in the circuit.

This case was initiated by now 43-year-old Bart van Well,
who was a child prostitute in his youth. He still suffers from
post-traumatic stress disorders and mood swings. He holds the
Netherlands responsible for that because he believes the country did not
do enough to stop child prostitution.

Other witnesses set to testify this week include former Justice
Minister Ivo Opstelten and VVD parliamentarian Fred Teeven, who was a
prosecutor at the time. Charles Maasdam, who owned a youth brothel in
the capital for years, is also set to testify. Joris Demmink will be
questioned at a later date."
