Government abandons criminal database
Antillean Referral Index database abolished
THE HAGUE – The Hague has abandoned its controversial plan for the so-called Antillean Referral Index, a separate database for young people from the Dutch Antilles and Aruba involved in crime in the Netherlands.
Minister for Integration, Eberhard van der Laan, says Antilleans can rest assured that the index, which they saw as generalised and discriminatory, has been scrapped.
