Bos ‘breach of trust’ with research institute

Finance minister Wouter Bos told MPs on Wednesday that there was a ‘breach of trust’ between himself and the financial research institute IFO.

The IFO is drawing up a report on the ‘profiteering policy’ scandal surrounding investment-based savings and insurance schemes on the minister’s behalf.
Bos has already criticised a draft report as being ‘well below standard’. Now the organisation says it cannot say when the report will be finished, Bos told MPs.
