Dutch parliament launches its own sexual intimidation investigation

The Dutch parliament is launching its own investigation to find out if sexual intimidation is an issue for workers within the parliamentary complex.

MPs on Thursday voted in favour of the probe, suggested by D66 MP Sjoerd Sjoerdsma. ‘The government must set the right example,’ Sjoerdsma said.

Ministers will now draw up an action plan for the investigation which is likely to start after the summer.
