Law on fathership instead of immigration law

Dutch ParliamentWILLEMSTAD – The OCAN Foundation advocates for a law on fathership instead of an immigration law in all parts of the Kingdom. The independent organization that represents the interests of Caribbean Dutch went into discussions with the Dutch MPs on this issue.

The Bosman bill has long been a point of discussion in politics. In conversation with MPs Roelof van Laar (PvdA) and Madeleine of Toorenburg (CDA) OCAN stressed that a law on fathership must be adopted instead of an immigration law. This is the foundation for the best interests of the child within the Kingdom.

Father unknown

It should not be possible to indicate “father unknown” on a birth certificate. OCAN’s interest is to have the fathers more involved in the upbringing of the child. “The child must not suffer under parentage issues. A healthy (educational) environment leads to stability, peace and a safe attachment. An immigration law will achieve the exact opposite,” the OCAN Foundation said. Van Laar and Toorenburg have indicated that they wish to study the law on fathership more.
