Prime Minister of Antilles: We Will Not Accept Dutch Discrimination

Emily de Jongh-Elhage, Prime Minister of the Dutch Antilles, says that the Dutch decision to renew the investigation on the establishment of a data bank of Antillean criminals in the Netherlands, is unacceptable. She said that she had agreed with the Dutch Minister of Integration Ella Vogelaar (Labor) that the data bank would include all criminals. The agreement led to the Labor Party forcing Vogelaar to resign. De Jongh-Elhage said that the data bank as conceived originally was discriminatory and stigmatizing which is not only unacceptable to the Antilles, but to the world as large.
