  • Vereniging Martijn. Founded in 1982. On 27 June 2012, a Dutch court ruled that the group was illegal and ordered it to disband immediately.[23] However, this decision was overturned by a higher court in April 2013. The judge motivated their decision by stating that the club did not commit crimes and had the right of freedom of association.[24] This was itself overturned by the Dutch Supreme Court on 18 April 2014, reinstating the trial judge's order and banning the organization for trivializing and glorifying pedophilic acts.[25] The association filed an appeal at the European Court of Human Rights but it was rejected.[26] The group published OK Magazine.[27]
