DUTCH PRIME MINISTER RUTTE BLAMES HIMSELF FOR DELAY IN A DAMAGE PROTOCOL FOR GRONINGEN GAS SEEPAGE VICTIMS

Dutch Prime Minister Rutte: ‘Time taken to form new cabinet is the cause of delay in new damage protocol for Groningen gas field’

The long time taken for cabinet formation has ensured that there is still no damage protocol for the victims of the gas seepage in Groningen Prime Minister Rutte said in the Buitenhof program on Sunday.

Because Rutte is ultimately responsible as prime minister, he also blames himself for the delay. “As prime minister, I am the first person to speak.”

‘It’s not from Groningen’

Last Friday, Rutte said that regional parties also play a role. That comment was very wrong in the north. On Sunday, however, Rutte said that he did not want to suggest that the cause of a loss protocol lies with regional directors. ‘It’s not Groningen,’ Rutte said.

He expects a new damage protocol to be available within a few weeks. The damage protocol is necessary because the NAM as the cause of the damage is placed outside the settlement of the damage. Until April last year, NAM was still involved and damage was being dealt with. Since then, the handling has stopped. However, new reports can still be made about damage to homes and buildings as a result of the gas seepage.
