    The [now: former] Secretary General of the Ministry of Security & Justice in the Netherlands, Joris Demmink, had been accused of child abuse four times by different young men. There are many many facts that point out to severe and structural abuse by this highly ranked and powerful official. Official reports were not made of the victims testifies however. Nor has it ever been agenda-ed by the responsible politicians. Even the media hardly paid attention to the matter. It seems child abuse has become a commodity of the high class and I don’t know what to say… I just know one thing... IT IS BIG!

    UPDATE 2014/03/04:
    Demmink is brought to court first day. This is a very important trial since we all need to know if our government is corrupt or not. A problem that still exists though is that the Ministry of which he was the main man now is obliged by another court to handle the charges. The Ministry (say: Jorris Demmink and others) refused this earlier until recently another judge said they needed to investigate the charges of child abuse against their former Secretary General. Just a little is written about it while the responsible Minister of Security and Justice, Ivo Opstelten, defends his and colleagues innocence in this public case on television. One main question is if we have trustworthy leaders in our country or just a bunch of dirty old liars and criminals. Many can be written about this. We will see what truth will dominate this time.

    Of course the issue of child abuse is much larger than mentioned above. It is taking place in homes, within families and so on. This song is for the children that got abused whenever, where ever...

    This is for the children
    Those that were abused
    The terror they went through
    Their pain and their confuse

    It’s sad that our rulers
    Fail to put on hold
    Often I wonder
    Will the truth unfold

    This is for the boys and girls
    That have been ritually tortured
    By sick and high class people
    That – not matter what – satisfied their needs

    It is said that some politicians
    Joined the network too
    Judges even royals
    Is what some have told

    This is for the children
    Those that were abused
    The terror they went through
    Their pain and their confuse

    O0h, Ooh, Oooooh
