Government Slow in Dealing with Problems with Youngsters in Slotervaart Neighborhood

Ahmed Marcouch, head of the Amsterdam Slotervaart Neighborhood Council, says that the government is too slow in dealing with the problematic youngsters in the neighborhood. “The result of this is that the terror in the neighborhood goes on unnecessarily. Residents have been suffering for years already from intimidation, destruction, physical attacks and thefts.” In October two policemen were stabbed in a police station, whereupon one of them shot and killed the attacker. This led cars being burned of cars and stones being thrown at the police office and journalists.
