D66 Member of Parliament Gerard Schouw yesterday put written questions to the Secretary of State based on a report from Defense for Children. According to the organization, the refugee family, which includes two boys of 5 and 6 years old, has been placed in the family detention center in Zeist, without the interests of the children taken into consideration "Even the judge ruled time and again that this is not allowed." Schouw said to the newspaper.
