20, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Rebecca Project for Human Rights today applauds the Honorable Chris Smith (R-NJ), Chairman of the House Foreign Relations Subcommittee on Africa, Global Health and Human Rights, for introducing House Resolution 838 to seek the removal of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) seat from the Hague, because of the "inexplicable refusal of the Netherlands to formally investigate the serious allegations" of pedophilia against former Dutch Secretary-General Joris Demmink.
The complaints were aired after Congressman Aurelio Gonzales sponsored House Resolution 2140 which asked the entertainment industry "to minimise, prevent, or stop typecasting congressmen and congresswomen as villains or crooks in movies and TV telenovelas".
