Report: Municipality Ignores Racism for Over a Year

For about a year and a half, the authorities in the town of Waalwijk ignored a large number of complaints about racist intimidation of a Liberian family living in the town. This is the conclusion of Forum, the Institute for Multi-Cultural Development in a report submitted to Minister of Immigration Ella Vogelaar, after the family fled the town in September 2007. The mayor of Waalwijk said that all authorities had failed in their responsibilities and apologized.
