Area Restrictions on 56 Youngsters in Nijmegen

Thom de Graaf ,the mayor of Nijmegen, will send letters to 56 youngsters informing them that they are no longer allowed to be in parts of the Dukenburg neighborhood between 6 o’clock in the evening and 8 o’clock in the morning. This measure was taken after on two successive evenings there was arson in the former youth center in the area. The mayor said that such an approach for Moroccan youngsters is necessary in order to limit future problems in the town. Such measures had been taken earlier against Antillean youth. The Green Left Party has criticized the mayor for specifically mentioning Moroccans as the major culprits in the neighborhood.
