Ban on investments in cluster munitions after all

13th October 2011, Comments 0 comments

The cabinet wants to ban investments by financial institutions in the production, sale and distribution of cluster munitions after all.

Finance Minister Jan Kees de Jager announced the cabinet’s decision in a letter to the Senate, which called for such a ban earlier this year.

The cabinet initially said it was opposed to a ban, but in the letter Minister De Jager writes that the cabinet will submit a detailed proposal to parliament at the end of the year.
