Government Wants to Expel Criminals from the Antilles

Minister of Justice Hirsch Ballin (Christian Democrats) is preparing a law which would allow the expulsion of criminals from the Dutch Antilles. Seven and a half percent of people from the Dutch Antilles living in the Netherlands have a police file, as opposed to 2 ½ percent of the total Dutch population. Hirsch Ballin stressed that this project is not discriminatory as the Dutch Antilles can also expel Dutch criminals.
