A number of cities and towns in the Netherlands foresee major practical problems in the implementation of the coalition's new plan for failed asylum seekers.
More than half of the 25 thousand refugees living in asylum centers across the Netherlands are waiting for the municipality to find them a home, Volkskrant reports. Municipalities claim that they do not have enough vacant rental housing to meet the demand.
2,741 (violent) incidents were recorded in Dutch asylum centers in the first 6 months of last year. These include 13 suicides, 80 suicide attempts, 124 intimidations and threats, 47 assaults, 58 missing people, 23 hunger strikes, 4 self-immolations and 10 suspicions of human trafficking. In the first half of 2014 there were about 12 thousand asylum seekers in Dutch centers, that number has doubled in the meantime.
