Children in Dutch children's homes were forced for years to take sedatives and antidepressants in the 1970s, RTL Nieuws reports based on its own research.

Among other things, the broadcaster spoke to five former residents of girls' boarding house Maria Regina in Stevensbeek, Noord-Brabant. In the 70s they were given drugs like Valium and Seresta. According to the De Winter Committee, which is investigating violence in youth care, this was also common practice in other children's homes.
