Parents of Hooligans should Pay Penalties

A majority in the Dutch Parliament wants to impose penalties on the parents of hooligans. This is in view of the continued disturbances in the Amsterdam Slotervaart neighborhood. The methods proposed are reduction of child allowances, reimbursement of the cost of damages, and fines. The initial proposal was made by Amsterdam Finance Alderman Lodewijk Asscher (Labor Party).
