Marco Borsato en Jaap de Hoop Scheffer

Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, former Secretary General of NATO, believes that Marco Borsato’s dossier will move forward soon. “There could be an acceleration in the file now.”


The rumor that Marco Borsato would act across borders against girls aged 13 to 15 was widely discussed on public radio for the first time, specifically on the Spraakmakers program on NPO Radio 1. There was a discussion between NU.nl Editor-in-chief Gert – Jaap Hochman and journalist In Telegraaf Water de Winther.


Another studio guest was Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, the former Secretary General of NATO. He listened to her and expected things to speed up now.

Yap: “Maybe those seven minutes of discussion between gentlemen here at the table will speed up the file. You never know now that a serious radio station like Radio 1 is interested in it.”

Flywheel effect

Presenter Jesselyn Plagg: “Are you saying we shouldn’t do that either?”

Yap: I think that’s a very relevant question or that should be taken into account in this program that we’re working on right now. This has a certain effect on the flywheel.”

He is a little worried. “You have to pay attention to the trial by the media, in this case, Marco Borsato was found guilty before he could say anything.”

The dilemma of the press

Yap: “You have to be careful about what you pay attention to. This is a serious radio station, NPO Radio 1, and then I can imagine you as a radio station making the decision: Should we pay attention to this?”
