Criminals on the Run Receive Social Security Payments

Criminals on the run in the Netherlands can easily receive Social Security payments in a variety of municipalities. About 15,000 convicted criminals are hiding from justice. Social Security institutions have to stop payments until criminals have finished their jail terms. However, 80 municipalities do not receive this information. The Liberal and Christian Democrat parliamentarian factions have asked Deputy Minister of Social Affairs Jetta Klijnsma (Labor Party) whether it is true that the number of convicted criminals on the run who receive Social Security payments has increased this year in comparison with last year.
