Review Committee CPB
The Hague, 5 September 1997
Subject: Your letter of 7 August
Dear Mr. Cool,
I have received your note (in English) of 7 August 1997 addressed to
the CPB Review Committee and the accompanying documentation (in Dutch).
The note has been sent on to the members of the Committee for consultation.
The position of the Review Committee is as follows:
The Review Committee is not a court of law or similar body. It has no special
competence in matters of law and legal procedure. It refrains from expressing
any opinion about the legal merits of your case.
Your case goes back to events happening in 1990, if not earlier. The Committee
concentrates its attention to more recent years. It has not seen any evidence
of a case similar to yours in the recent past. It sees no reason to draw
from your experience in the remote past general conclusions about the way
CPB functions at present and about current working conditions at the Bureau.
On behalf of the Review Committee
Anton P. Barten
