AMSTERDAM – People who use violence to defend themselves against a robber or burglar should not immediately be regarded as suspects by the public prosecution department. This is the view of the Liberal VVD, which wants to see the right to self defence included in the law.

The NOS reported on Wednesday that the Labour PvdA and Christian Democrat CDA do not think it necessary to amend legislation. The coalition parties are concerned that this kind of measure could make it easier for people to take the law into their own hands.
