The authorities must abide by the obligations that can be found in international treaties and the Dutch Constitution. This means that citizens have certain freedoms and rights with which the authorities may not interfere. If this nonetheless happens, it may mean that these rights have been breached and it might be possible to hold the authorities liable. We have accrued unique experience conducting civil proceedings against the Dutch authorities. Examples are the Srebrenica case (Nuhanović and Mustafić) and the cases concerning Dutch war crimes in the former Dutch East-Indies (1945-1949). Needless to say you can also turn to us in connection with breaches of human rights on Dutch territory.

Our attorneys are happy to advise you on your legal options.
