Brabant town hall threatened with arson over asylum seekers
The police are investigating a threatening letter that was sent anonymously to the municipality of Aalbug and broadcaster Omroep Brabant. The anonymous writer threatens to burn down the Aalburg town hall if the municipality takes in any more asylum seekers. "This is not a threat, but a promise", the letter states, according to the broadcaster. The anonymous writer continues that the municipality is full. And if any further refugees have to be taken in "then it should be in Werkendam and Woudrichem". The writer calls asylum seekers "stinking terorists and all other black riffraff and other gold diggers". A spokesperson for the municipality confirmed that the letter had been received and they have reported it to the police. The mayor has also been informed. The police are investigating.
