Childrens’ Ombudsman: Dutch Tax Authority Ignored Childrens’ Rights

The Ombudsman for Children Margrite Kalverboer said that the Dutch tax authority acted contrary to the Convention on Rights of the Child when in 2014, it discontinued the child care allowance for over 200 families.  In 2017, the National Ombudsman published a damning report about what had gone wrong in the case. A newspaper report found that the tax authority deliberately rejected parents objections and withheld internal documents during court proceedings launched by parents.
