Matthijs van Nieuwkerk participates in research NPO into DWDD | Media

Matthijs van Nieuwkerk is participating in the research that the NPO has carried out into the working conditions at the program The world goes on. The investigation of the public broadcaster is partly transferred to a committee.

The NPO investigation focuses on the question of what signals about abuses there have been and what happened to those signals. There was strong criticism of the fact that the public broadcaster itself is leading the investigation. This would jeopardize the independence of the investigation.

That is why a delegated clientship has now been chosen. “Then you give a committee of wise people the space to formulate the question and to find researchers. You place a link in between,” says government commissioner of cross-border behavior Mariëtte Hamer on Friday in the KRO-NCRV program Speech makers.

The Volkskrant reported last Friday, based on conversations with seventy employees of the program, that Van Nieuwkerk regularly belittled and terrorized employees.

Van Nieuwkerk has since broken the collaboration with BNNVARA. The broadcaster has offered help to all three hundred former employees of the program. Medialane, the company that employs Van Nieuwkerk, has not yet responded substantively to the revelations.

Frans Klein, video director of the NPO, has also resigned. He has not yet permanently left the public broadcaster. As media director of BNNVARA at the time, Klein was closely involved in the recording of The world goes on.
