Dutch royal holiday house arouses Greek media ire

Wednesday 11 June 2014

A row has erupted in Greece about the possible involvement of three government ministers in the sanctioning of illegal building work on the Dutch royal family’s new holiday home, the Financieele Dagblad says on Wednesday.

The paper says the Greek media are full of stories about the building of a private harbour on the estate, outside the village of Kranidi on the Peloponnese. The harbour would give the family direct access to the sea.

The FD says there are claims that various laws have been broken to make it possible to build the harbour and to fence the estate off from the surrounding area.

This has been done out of ‘public safety’ considerations but questions are being asked about what aspects of public safety are being served, the paper says.

Row

King Willem-Alexander bought the €4.5m holiday house on the Greek coast in 2012.

The royal couple were forced to sell their first holiday home on a luxury complex in Mozambique following a wave of negative publicity about the project, including claims of corruption, environmental damage and a lack of benefits for the local population.

Greece



Mozambique
Crown Prince Willem-Alexander and his wife Princess Máxima are abandoning their project to build a holiday villa for themselves in Mozambique.

The move follows criticism in parliament about the handling of the affair by Prime Minister Jan Peter Balkenende, who is formally responsible for public actions of the Dutch Royal family.

• RNW's Eric Beauchemin visited the site and spoke to local residents

Watch Eric's video;


The holiday home that is currently being built as a part of a luxury resort will be sold once it has been completed. Prince Willem-Alexander wrote to Prime Minister Balkenende that he no longer wants the real estate project to be surrounded by adverse publicity.

Media
The prince wrote that he hoped his participation in the building project on the Mozambican peninsula of Machangulo would help the development of the local population. "But there is a risk now that the ongoing reporting in the media about our participation is overshadowing the favourable developments on the ground. As every mistake is focused on, the project is at a disadvantage."

In an apparent reference to the attention given to the case by MPs and the prime minister, the prince adds,

"Also, such a discussion costs time and effort that should be spent on other business instead."

Controversial
The princely couple bought four plots of land in Mozambique in 2007, one of which was intended for their own holiday home. The project was controversial from the outset, both inside and outside parliament in The Hague. There were doubt whether the project would have the intended positive effects on the poor local population. The Mozambican government confirmed that it would.

Princess Máxima and Prince Willem-Alexander have emphasised that their commitment to the project will continue, even though they themselves will not be holidaying there. "Our involvement has raised expectations with the local population, which we consider ourselves bound to," they wrote to the prime minister.
