Amsterdam Police Commissioner: Mayor Hampers my Work

Amsterdam Head Police Commissioner Bernard Welten has stated that he is being hampered in his functioning by Amsterdam Mayor Job Cohen. He said that he is not given enough possibility to express publicly what the problems in society are and how they can be handled. He also criticized Minister of the Interior Guusje ter Horst, who has now been in his position for two and a half years but has never received Welten. He added: “She probably never talks with police people, but only with elected politicians.”
