The Flemish parliament decided on Tuesday, at a meeting of its enlarged Bureau, to set up a special commission to examine the issue of inappropriate sexual behavior in the world of sport. Several parties had called for an ad hoc committee in the Flemish Parliament after various testimonies of inappropriate sexual behavior in the sport of judo. Within the majority, the Open Vld had even asked for a parliamentary commission of inquiry, other parties wishing for a special commission.
The Enlarged Bureau decided on Tuesday: it will be a special committee, but it will be able to be transformed into a committee of inquiry or to extend its scope to other sectors such as welfare, youth, education or culture if necessary.
