Two Mayors Go Public about Public Influence of Criminals

Very few Dutch mayors dare to speak openly about the intimidation tactics used against the authorities by criminal elements.  One mayor mentioned that the problem is particularly pronounced in the province of northern Brabant.  These criminals come from trailer parks, the Turkish mafia, and motorcycle gangs and collaborate with each other.  Some of these criminals try, via intermediaries, to obtain positions in municipal councils.  The intimidation causes fear among politicians, bureaucrats and government officials.
