Hasselt , 20th of November 2004
Dear Sir ,
Concerning my e-mail messages from the 15th and 17th of November in where I introduced myself as a representative of people who has signed the petition of protest against the ongoing killing of thousands and thousands of dolphins in Japan , I would like to make enlightments on the following events :
Instead of giving an answer our private e-mail(s) were handed to the police . I was interrogated by telephone by the police of the Hague-Lands . Our intentions were clear: my wife and me wanted only to deliver the petitions. I have heard that the aviation police also questioned AS&S Air services that were to fly with an appropriate banner. In that case they were stressed that "under the current social and political circumstances in the Netherlands this flight is not wanted."
On Friday the 19th of November I turned my car in the Tobias Asserlaan where the Embassy
of Japan is situated.
Mister Ambassador, we are Dutchmen . We are used to speak out freely . It is our most
beloved democratic right
Mr. Kyoji Komachi , you handed my private e-mail to the police . I will forward this
letter into publicity .
We sincerely hope that the protests all over the world will improve the behaviour of the Japanese fishermen and Government as well .
