The installation manual is wrong. See
<http://www.exim.org/howto/mailman21.html#exconf> for additions to
local_part_suffix and the addition of 'domains =' in the router

That said, I don't see that those changes will affect your problem.

What are the full messages from the Exim log.

It appears that you have eliminated the macro definitions and
substituted them directly into the router and transport definitions.
While this may not be a problen, the fact that you have literally
'nieuwsbrief' instead of '${lc::$local_part}' in require_files in the
router means this router will only work for the one list. Maybe this
was part of your debugging?
