- The crime of voluntarily joining a hostile army during wartime or giving assistance to the enemy was introduced in the statute books—and sanctioned with the death penalty—by the Dutch government in exile in London during World War II. After the war, tens of thousands of persons accused of some kind of col laboration were arrested and tried by special tribunals and courts.
