Verdonk: Cabinet Lies about General Amnesty for Asylum Seekers

Parliamentarian and former minister Rita Verdonk (elected on Liberal list but now Independent) claims that the government has lied about the costs of the Dutch society of the general amnesty for asylum seekers. The cabinet had estimated the cost at 450 million Euro. Verdonk says that including social benefits, the cost will be 6 billion Euro. She pointed out that this money should have been better used for social care, safety and salary increases for policemen and teachers.
