Minister Ferd Grapperhaus believes he can continue to act in a credible manner as chief of the Ministry of Justice and Security, which will ensure that corona rules are followed. Corona rules were violated during his wedding last Saturday. The guests did not always keep enough distance, as can be seen in the photos.

Before the start of the Council of Ministers, he said: “The Netherlands could see that I really did my best to obey the rules at my own wedding.” He’s sorry it didn’t quite work out. The subject was already discussed in the Council of Ministers on Thursday.

State Secretary Ankie Broekers-Knol (Justice and Security), who celebrated the wedding, also believes that Grapperhaus is still credible as a minister. “All measures have been taken to ensure that the 1.5 meter distance can be maintained.” According to her, it is also “difficult” to keep it going all the time.

For the Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Hugo de Jonge, the matter was settled with the regret of his party member Grapperhaus. “Ferd is very credible.”
