Missing girls blame school for Paris weekend
Two schoolgirls aged 16 and 17 who went missing during a school trip to Paris last week are blaming the school for what happened.
They failed to turn up at the agreed place in Paris on Friday afternoon for the journey back to Maastricht in the south of the Netherlands after the two-day trip. They finally went to a police station in the French capital on Monday, saying that they didn’t have enough money to get home.
Other school students who were on the trip have accused the girls of missing the journey home deliberately, saying the two had planned to have a long weekend in Paris and wanted to meet up with French boys they’d met back home in the Netherlands.
The school headteacher rejects the girls’ allegations that those in charge of the trip were negligent and to blame for the confusion about where they should meet up for the journey home.
