Asylum Seekers up 43 %

The number of people seeking asylum in The Netherlands increased by 43% during the first half of 2008. In the rest of the EU it declined by 3%. The reason is probably that the Dutch Deputy Minister of Justice Albayrak (Labor) follows a policy of not investigating certain categories of asylum seekers. This policy has been criticized by two of the coalition parties – Labor and the Christian Democrats.
