Similarly, the head of the investigation team answered a question if the persons in whom the investigation is interested.She said the answer is the same, the team is investigating, and while the investigation is underway, they will not say what is of interest to them.
Speaking about the time frame for the investigation, Boetzelaer said the investigation will continue as long as there is progress.
