Both the Belgian and Netherlands police are continuing their hunt for Anneke Beekman, Dutch Jewish war orphan spirited out of Holland into Belgium by her Catholic foster-mother, the Netherlands Minister of Justice today declared.

Commenting on reports in the Catholic press here that the Belgian authorities had refused to cooperate further with the Dutch police in searching for the girl, the Minister declared that the Belgians were rendering all assistance in the matter.
