  • Description

    Holland's Minister of the Interior E.H. Toxopeus arrived in Hollandia Oct 11 to make a "fact-finding" visit to Dutch New Guinea. At the capital, he was greeted by Governor Dr. P.J. Platteel; Director of Internal Affairs A. Boendermaker, and other officials and service chiefs.

    It was Toxopeus' first visit to Dutch New Guinea, for which Holland recently announced it would begin a 10-year development plan in preparations for self-rule. Dutch New Guinea is a bone of contention between Holland and Indonesia, whose Government - led by President Sukarno - claims the area as Indonesian territory.
