Ernst & Young to probe minister’s past

Environment minister Jacqueline Cramer has commissioned accountancy group Ernst & Young to look into claims that she supported activists magazine Bluf in 1986.

Cramer is under fire after the NRC unearthed a newspaper advert backing the magazine which published documents stolen from the economic affairs ministry. Cramer, then spelled Kramer, is one of the signatories but says she has no recollection of doing so.
‘The researcher is going to look into everything and get the facts straight,’ ANP reported the minister as saying. ‘I have nothing to hide’.
