Two Main Amsterdam Taxi Stations Manned by Gangsters

The Parool daily writes that, at night, the two main taxi stations in Amsterdam, the one at the Central Station and thye one on the Leidseplein in the center of the city, are in the hands of gangsters. This situation has been given much publicity after a cab driver killed a potential passenger. Police Commissioner Hans Schönfeld said that the recent announcement of the Inspectorate of Transport that the situation had improved, reminded him of Saddam Hussein’s Minister of Propaganda who announced that the Americans were being defeated while bombs were exploding in the background. The area at the Central Station is often guarded by an empty police car. It is increasingly becoming known as the “Gaza Strip.”
