Minister Bruno Bruins for Medical Care is threatening to name and shame pharmaceutical companies that charge sky-high price for their medicines for unknown reasons. In this way he hopes to increase social pressure on the pharmaceutical industry to keep their prices on an affordable level, the Minister said in an open letter in the Volkskrant on Tuesday.
The police posted photos of people involved in the anti-asylum center riots in Geldermalsen on December 16th, on their website on Friday. The faces in the photos are blurred out. If the rioters do not turn themselves in by Wednesday, the police will show the photos - without the blur - on the broadcast of Bureau GLD that same day. If that still does not deliver the desired results, the photos will be shown in the popular program Opsporing Verzocht on February 2nd.
