And it can be worse. This morning, the Dutch daily newspaper De Volkskrant reported that Gretta Duisenberg yesterday received a letter in which she was threatened with death.

The Dutch police has taken the matter very serious and she has now police protection. Not only the police in Amsterdam and Germany are involved in the investigation, also the security of the Bank of the Netherlands and the European Central Bank.

The police has adviced Duisenberg not to give interviews or statements about the content of the letter. Gretta Duisenberg reportedly said: ‘I’m not quickly afraid, but it was a dirty letter.’
