Dutch MPs demand crackdown on Nigerian gangs
Three parties in the Dutch parliament want a permanent police united formed to investigate Nigerian criminal gangs.28 July 2008
Three parties in the Dutch parliament, the Christian Democrats, the conservative VVD and the populist Freedom Party have called on Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch-Ballin to create a permanent police unit to investigate Nigerian criminal gangs.
They say that since 2007's abolition of a temporary police unit which had arrested a number of Nigerian criminals, new gangs have formed.
The Freedom Party has also called on Deputy Justice Minister Nehabat Albayrak to change immigration legislation, so that foreigners suspected of criminal activity can be declared undesirable aliens.
