Court Decides Minister Cannot Use Antillian Databank

The Hague court has decided that Ella Vogelaar, the Minister of Integration, cannot use the VIA databank as this is against the law on the protection of personal data. The databank enables better tracking of wandering Antillian and Aruban youngsters in The Netherlands. The court procedure was brought by the representative body of Caribbean Dutch, as it considers the VIA a type of discrimination.
