Violence against Mayors Increases

Almost seventy percent of the mayors and aldermen of Dutch cities have been confronted in 2008 with violence, intimidation or threats. This is an increase of ten percent over 2006. Minister of the Interior Guusje ter Horst (Labor) said this at the annual congress of the Association of Dutch Mayors. She announced that a hot line will be opened for mayors and aldermen to assist them in such situations.
