The Dutch seemed to have hit a wall in the case of the two kids who fled to the Dutch Embassy in Damascus close to two months ago.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is now looking for an external mediator who would be able to negotiate for the release of the two kids. According to a Ministry spokesman the Ministry has considered the idea for a while, but is now thinking about it seriously. "We're looking for an expert in the field of kidnappings or judicial cases. He doesn't have to be by definition Dutch."
Janneke Schoonhoven, the children's mother, says that she came up with the idea. "We're fully dependent on the father and his has accused the embassy of kidnapping. Therefore we need somebody neutral."
