Ninety-two Arrested in Neighborhood
In the past 12 months 92 arrests have been made in the infamous Diamond St. neighborhood in Amsterdam. This was announced in a letter to the municipal council by Deputy Mayor Lodewijk Asscher. This neighborhood has suffered for many years from major problems with youngsters - mainly of Moroccan background. The crimes committed include break-ins, street robberies, theft, kidnapping, insulting officials and breaking laws regarding weapons and drugs. In the coming days Amsterdam’s top officials will discuss this problem.http://www.telegraaf.nl/binnenland/3975488/__Pakket_maatregelen_tegen_overlast_Diamantbuurt__.
