PVV law criminal Antilleans dies in Second Chamber

Sietse FritsmaTHE HAGUE - A bill proposal with which criminal Antilleans can be sent back to their island of origin dies in the Second Chamber of the Dutch Parliament. The PVV hoped for its initiative law with right-wing support to get a majority, but that was in vain.

PVV Member of Parliament Fritsma wants to send criminal Dutch people from Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten - all three countries within our kingdom - back to their island of origin. According to the PVV, this is no more than normal, and if European Dutch people go to these islands, they will also be sent back to 'the motherland', says Fritsma. The Second Chamber debates this Thursday on the bill initiative of the PVV party.

The plan goes way too far for VVD MP Bosman. He prefers to keep criminal Antilleans and those who do not have a chance to make a decent living in the Netherlands out. Once they do make it to the Netherlands, Bosman does not think they can be send back for every offense they commit.

The CDA faction also does not support this bill. Member of Parliament Van Toorenburg states that no distinction is made between various offenses, no matter how heavy or how light, and that this applies to everyone, no matter how long they have lived in the European Netherlands. “It goes beyond its objective and is therefore even in violation of the law.”
