Bedankt. Vertaling (my own translation, niet slecht voor een
buitenlander) ....

OPTA regulates the Dutch communications market including consumer
protection.

OPTA has now ended the registration of Diginotar as a supplier of
authorised certificates for electronic signatures. 

An investigation by OPTA revealed the trustworthiness of approved
certificates from Diginotar can no longer be guaranteed.

This means the business of issuing authorised certificates must stop and
no new authorised certificates must be issued.
