Floors in Ministries Unsafe

It has been found that the construction in two office towers in which the ministry of home affairs and of justice and security are housed contain partially unreliable floors.  According to the NRC daily, 14 rooms and 110 workplaces in the towers were closed during recent weeks.  Civil servants are no longer permitted to meet in large groups in certain places in the building.  Nevertheless, the Ministry of Home Affairs told the newspaper that the building is absolutely safe.  Other government buildings in The Hague and hundreds of other buildings in the Netherlands may also be unsafe.  The problem was identified when a parking structure at Eindhoven Airport collapsed a year ago.
