MPs want probe into Mozambique project

Coalition partners Labour and the orthodox Christian ChristenUnie party have called for an investigation into the Mozambique holiday home project of crown prince Willem-Alexander and princess Maxima, reports Tuesday’s Volkskrant.

There has been growing speculation about corruption, environmental damage and a lack of investment for the local population in connection with the property development project in Mozambique, says the paper.
There have been various calls for prince Willem-Alexander to withdraw from the Mozambique project.
The two parties will ask prime minister Jan Peter Balkenende (Christian Democrats) to look into the Mozambique project during a parliamentary debate on Thursday which is expected to bring up a number of questions connected to the finances of the royal family.
