Deputy Minister of Finance Resigns

Deputy Minister of Finance Frans Weekers (VVD Liberal party) has resigned. Weekers had been criticized after tens of thousands of people had not received their social payments in December and January. Weekers had suggested that this was their own fault because they had not answered requests for information for the fiscal authorities. He then had to apologize because it turned out that there were problems within the Fiscal Services wit concerning these payments. Last year he had already been criticized in Parliament as Bulgarian criminal gangs had fraudulently received major payments.
