Dutch politician admits mistake in dumping ambassador’s gift

December 27, 2017

TEHRAN – Henk Krol, a Dutch politician, has admitted that he had made a mistake when he threw away a Christmas gift from the Iranian ambassador during a broadcast of PowNews.

He told PowNews that the ambassador only sent gifts to male parliamentarians, while gifts were sent only to the party leaders and the foreign spokespersons, both male and female. 

“I’ve said sorry so often in my life, this can be added to that,” Krol was quoted by NOS as saying.

However, he said he does not intend to offer his apologies to the embassy.
