Zaltbommel: After Threats by Hooligans, Mayor Needs Protection

Mayor Albert van den Bosch of Zaltbommer has been given police protection in view of the violence and intimidation of the town’s population by 50-60 young Moroccan hooligans. The mayor says that the hoodlums vary in age from 10-25. Parliamentarian De Krom (Liberals) says that violence by Moroccan youngsters seems to be increasing and may get out of control. Labor parliamentarian Dijsselbloem said that the police have insufficient staff and that Minister of the Interior Guusje ter Horst (Labor) wants to save even further on police expenses, although there is need for strengthening the force. The Moroccan Al Amal organization in the town says that it has also been threatened by these youngsters.
