Sex Crime Police Under Pressure


Jan Struijs, Chairman of the Dutch Police Union (NPB), says that the sex crime police division is under great pressure.  All research shows that there is insufficient information about sexual violence and intimidation in Dutch society.  The pressure on the police has continually increased in this area.  The issues concerned are child pornography, rape, human trafficking and incest.  While monitors indicate that there are more reports on cases, there is no increase in the number of complaints to the police.  He concluded that sexual violence is a problem from which we only see the tip of the iceberg.

Alt Right Group Includes Neo-Nazis

The Volkskrant daily has devoted a large article to an international conference of an extreme right-wing group called Erkenbrand. The great majority present were Dutchmen, most of whom have higher education. They focus on race and realism and mention the beginning of the rise of the revolution in Charlottesville (USA), where a right-wing extremist killed an anti-fascist. The group includes Neo-Nazis. One of them said to the paper, I wouldn’t shed a tear if the trains to the east start running again. This is a reference to the Nazi transport of the Jews to the extermination camps in Poland.

Intelligence service: Radical Muslim Women may Carry out Terror Attacks

The AIVD general intelligence service warns that about hundred Muslim women in the Netherlands are radicalized so much that they might undertake a terror attack. In addition eighty women have left the Netherlands to join ISIS in Syria or Iraq. The AIVD mentions that part of them walk around with weapons and suicide belts. That means that the image of the woman which sits at home taking care of the children is no longer valid.

The Nazis are not mentioned as such but referred to as “the enemies.”

Criminal Albanians rising Group in Drug Trade

Gangs from Albania have become increasingly important in Dutch crime. They are mainly involved major offenses in organized crime. The head of the Rotterdam police, Frank Paauw, has recently returned from a visit to Albania for the purpose of discussing illegal travelers and organized crime. In 2015, there were about 300 incidents with Albanian suspects, a year later in 2016 that had increased to 1000. Paauw said that trade in cocaine and human trafficking are their core business.  In the Netherlands, the number of official Albanian citizens is 800. The number of suspected criminals is almost as high. Police and justice officials in Amsterdam have suggested that Albanians should be required to obtain a visa when traveling to countries in the Schengen area.
