BOOS conducted research with the journal Vrij Nederland. The broadcast, which can be watched on YouTube this afternoon from 4pm, is about how the rules are set for Peter van Vollenhoven, his son Peter Christian, and his grandson Lucas van Liebe Bisterveld. For example, the latter was reportedly hired as an officer without prior training.

Van Vollenhoven would also have attained the rank of brigadier general in the Air Force without difficulty. He said, “He got this because he had such a warm character, because he often gave advice – whether it was undesirable or not – and because when he sat down at the dinner table with his sons he was of the same rank and we had to get rid of that.” source, according to Hoffman.

Hoffman thinks it’s crazy for the royal family to be given such a high rank when there is no service in return, for example. As an example, he mentions the British Prince Harry, who was sent to Afghanistan. “Now you’re looking at the people who are favorites, who are not called back and who are getting that extra salary.”
Armed Forces Commander Onno Eichelsheim stated last night at Op1 in response to the upcoming episode that it is possible to train people in defense in different ways. He doesn’t think it’s true that there are exceptions to oranges. “You have to weigh on an individual basis how many courses you give these people,” he says.
“We’ve also trained this guy in a different way,” Eichelsheim says of Lucas van Liebe Besterveld. “Not as a specific military training he needed, but he trained specifically for the tasks we gave him afterwards.” He thought that should be possible. “You can differentiate what you give someone. I think you should be able to do that every time.”
