Political Parties in Gouda Demand Stronger Measures Against Hooligans

Various political parties have demanded that stronger measures be taken against Moroccan hooligans in the problem town of Gouda. Christian Democrats say that the authorities must put an end to the street violence, sexual assault as well as throwing stones at the police. The local party Gemeente Belangen Gouda says that if the police won’t show that they are in charge, riots may get out of control and there will be many wounded and possibly, people could even be killed. A police spokesman said that since January 2009, 539 arrests have been made and about 300 fines were given for vandalism.
