For MFK it is equality for the Kingdom citizens that matters

5297be61e7770d956bd166d440b2286a_XLWILLEMSTAD – Opposition party MFK headed by former Prime Minister, Gerrit Schotte, handed a letter about the so called “Bosmanwet” (Bosman law) to the visiting Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte.

The “Bosmanwet” limits the movement of people within the Dutch Kingdom, in the sense that disadvantaged Antilleans from the three countries of Curacao, Sint Maarten and Aruba have to comply with strict requirements  to be able to settle in the Netherlands.

The letter was handed over to Rutte by MFK’s member of Parliament, Amerigo Thode. The opposition party believes that the “Bosmanwet” is discriminatory and contrary to the Statute, the Dutch Constitution and various laws and international agreements.

On Monday, Rutte indicated during a press conference with his counterpart Ivar Asjes that it is a topic that both parties do not agree with each other.
